The Volant Charitable Trust and Foundation Scotland

We are delighted to announce we have successfully secured 3 year funding from The Volant Charitable Trust and Foundation Scotland. Each year this funding will support 7 children aged 3-14 years in the Gorebridge, Dalkeith and Mayfield areas. This will enable us to provide these children with fifteen week play therapy blocks, with the aim to reduce day to day anxiety and stress, and build confidence and resilience.
