Craigdale to continue coronavirus support thanks to £25k funding awards
Craigdale Housing Association has secured over £25,000 worth of funding to provide support to its tenants during the coronavirus emergency thanks to the Scottish Government, National Lottery and Cash for Kids.
The Association has received £9,300 from the National Lottery Community Fund to ensure its tenants receive financial support during the current pandemic. The funding good news has also led to an award of £10,800 for struggling families with children from the Scottish Government’s Wellbeing Fund. A final announcement relates to an award of £5,425 from Cash for Kids and this will support Craigdale tenants who have children.
Craigdale will manage the funding awards and work with tenants to agree how the money will be spent.
David Mackenzie, chief executive officer at Craigdale, said: “The Craigdale board and staff care about all of our tenants and these funding announcements will be very well received by every single one of our tenants and their families. Our fantastic staff have made outbound telephone calls to our tenants throughout this period providing vital support and assistance, however there is an urgent need for financial assistance within our community.
“We are very grateful to the Scottish Government, the National Lottery and Cash for Kids for making these awards and we will ensure that all of our tenants are assisted through these generous awards. We are immensely grateful for the money and will ensure that the most at risk individuals in our area are helped in this difficult time.”
