Thursday, 11 August 2016 10:32
Angus MacDonald, MSP for Falkirk East, has today welcomed news of a grant from Young Start, run by the Big Lottery Fund, being awarded in the area.
Young Scot have successfully applied for £50’000 from the grant scheme, which will go towards their two year programme of providing support for up to 50 young people, who have been involved in the criminal justice system. The programme will also see these young people become involved in the decision making process.
Commenting on this award, Falkirk East MSP Angus MacDonald said:
“This news is most welcome. Young Scot’s successful application for funding will no doubt go on to potentially change the lives of many young people throughout the area and, ultimately, result in having a positive effect throughout the constituency.
“I will be presenting a motion in Parliament to recognise this award and wish Young Scot, and the young people within their programme, the very best in going forward.”
