The Big Lottery Fund Scotland Blog

A whopping £4.1 million lottery funding has today been shared amongst seven deserving groups across Scotland. 

The Glasgow Association for Mental Health are awarded £678,018 to continue their vitalLetschataboutmentalhealth work with young carers from 12 – 21 year olds who are caring for a family member with a mental health problem.

Young carers will be given the chance to meet and
develop friendships with other young people in similar circumstances, giving them a new chance to socialise without having to explain or hide their family circumstance.

Young people who previously benefited from
the project came up with these fab GIF’s at the recent Aye workshop. Check them out…

The funding means GAMH will be able to continue help the young people build the skills they need to help them cope now but also encourages soft skills and helps ensure there are opportunities for the young people to move towards a more positive future.
