Organisations helping children and young people are to receive funding to support their work.


Comann nam Parant Naiseanta will benefit by £100,000.

£12,000 is being awarded to Barra Children's Centre.

Across Scotland 117 groups will received £14 million from the Children, Young People and Families Early Intervention and Adult Learning and Empowering Communities Fund.

Minister for childcare and early years Maree Todd said: “The third sector has an essential part to play in helping us to improve the lives of young people and families.

“Day in and day out, the voluntary sector supports thousands of children, young people and their families in communities across the country, often the most vulnerable or disadvantaged.

“The projects and organisations we are funding are making a real difference, ensuring that more children get a better start in life and I am proud to support them.”
