The National Community Lottery Fund Award
Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre is delighted to announce that we have received a National Lottery award from The National Lottery Community Fund. The 3 year grant will fund 2 full time and a part time worker who will work across the Forth Valley area. This grant allows us to sustain and grow our current staffing.
This will have a positive impact on the lives of survivors of sexual violence as it will allow us to reduce waiting times as well as innovate in how we offer our trauma informed support.
During the lifetime of the project, we will partner with University of Stirling and Forth Valley college to offer on campus therapeutic support to those affected by sexual violence.
The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland Chair, Maureen McGinn, said:“I am delighted that Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre has been successful in securing a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund. The award will make a big difference where it is needed most and I wish the Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre every success as it goes on to develop and expand its project for the benefit of their local community.”
