One Westminster wins Big Lottery funding to support Church Street families
The Big Lottery Fund has just released details of which community projects will receive a share of almost £60million of funding and we are delighted to report that One Westminster is one of them. Working in partnership with Family Lives, the three-year £350,000 award is for a project to be called Families Learning & Support that will provide a befriending service to families in need in Church Street as well as a wide-ranging after school family activities programme. The programme will provide much needed support to parents who often struggle to deal with school and professional services.
Jackie Rosenberg, CEO of One Westminster, commented: “Having run our Family Learning Involvement Project in Church Street for three years, we are delighted to now be working with Family Lives. Their befriending programme will be a real boost to local families.”
The project will start in November once new staff have been appointed.
