The work we have supported includes  provision for older people, youth work and intergenerational work, foodbank, funding for groups working with refugees and asylum seekers, addicts, mental health sufferers, families in need and work with the homeless and excluded. Small local funding such as ours can be a lifeline for grass roots groups delivering vital work in local communities.
