CLAPA Secures £284,881.00 from BIG Lottery Fund
We are very pleased to announce that funding has been secured from the BIG Lottery Fund’s Reaching Communities Programme for the CLAPA Volunteers project. The grant of £284,881 will allow CLAPA to employ three Regional Coordinators over a 4 year period.
The Regional Coordinators will cover the following geographic areas:
- East of England
- Central region (East and West Midlands)
- South East of England
The recruitment of these positions will be staggered to allow networks to be properly established in each respective area.
The Regional Coordinators will recruit, train and support local people to volunteer to support those affected by cleft and to raise awareness of cleft lip and palate and the services delivered by the charity.
The employment of these three Regional Coordinators is part of CLAPA’s national strategy to create a network of 9 Regional Coordinators across the UK to establish a sustainable volunteering network.
Claire Cunniffe, CLAPA’s National Coordinator says: “CLAPA is a very small charity and we aim to support all people across the UK who are affected by cleft. This funding will make a huge difference as it will enable us to extend our reach to people in their local area and enable people affected by cleft to support each other through volunteering”.
