Centre 56 has received a substantial grant which will help it continue to provide vital services.
Centre 56 is a safe place for children and families in crisis. It is the only domestic abuse charity in the region to provide year-round nursery and after-school childcare alongside support services for whole families.
The £20,000 grant has been awarded to the charity by the Garfield Weston Foundation, a family-founded charitable grant-making organisation. In 2018, the Foundation celebrated its 60th anniversary and has made over £1 billion of donations to charities across the UK.
The grant will help Centre 56 to continue to provide a safe place for children and families in crisis. The Foundation’s generous support will help some of the most vulnerable children and families in society to stabilise their lives, develop and thrive.
Pat Roberts, Nursery and After-school Manager at Centre 56, said: “We’re over the moon to receive this grant from Garfield Weston Foundation. It’s wonderful to get this funding towards our running costs – helping us to keep providing support to our children and families.”
“We rely on donations like this to stay open and be ready to help those who need us most.”
