National Lottery Community Fund Grant Announcement
Lothian Centre for Inclusive Living (LCiL) is delighted to announce the award of a successful funding boost from The National Lottery Community Fund. LCiL has a proven track record as a leading champion of the Independent Living Movement in Scotland. We support disabled people, people with long-term conditions and older people to live independently and take control of their own lives.
Callum Ogden, Disability Information Services Coordinator at LCiL said: “We are very proud to receive this funding award from The National Lottery Community Fund. This funding will allow us to build on our successful services and do more to support disabled people, people with long-term conditions and older people to live independently, access essential services and maximise their income through comprehensive advice and support. With the cost-of-living crisis adding to the existing social and financial impact of COVID-19 felt by millions of people across Scotland, this award will ensure that LCiL continues to be at the forefront of providing support to those who need it in Edinburgh and the Lothians.”
The National Lottery Community Fund, Scotland Chair, Kate Still, said: “National Lottery funding can make amazing things happen in local communities across the country. This project delivered by Lothian Centre for Inclusive Living, is a great example of community activity in action, showing just what can be achieved when people come together for a common cause or to help others. National Lottery players can be proud to know that the money they raise is helping to support this vital work and to help communities thrive.”
