This week Big Lottery Fund Scotland is delighted to welcome members of our UK Board as they visit Glasgow to hold their board meeting. The nine strong board, Chaired by Peter Ainsworth, is here to find out more about the important work we are supporting in Scotland.
Today will see the board make a number of visits to funded projects as well as pay a visit to the Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome to find out more about the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Tomorrow the Fund’s office overlooking the Clyde will host their regular board meeting. For Fund staff in Scotland this is an opportunity for us to showcase our work north of the border and illustrate how we are helping people, families and communities in greatest need.
It’s this kind of visit which allows us to share our expertise. So knowledge about how and where we work differently in Scotland is shared across the UK so everyone can begin to benefit.
We’d like to thank the four organisations who’ve been able give their time to host project visits which we believe will give a greater insight into what we do in Scotland. We know that these projects represent just a taste of how our Lottery funding is making a difference and wish that we’d more time so we could showcase more of the fantastic work all our funded projects are delivering day in day out.
Thanks go to the following organisations hosting
• Scotcash and their Financial Inclusion in the Community project;
• NSPCC: New Orleans Early Intervention Model;
• MyTime Active: Healthy Powerful Communities and
• Includem: Transitional Support Programme.
