Fife children’s charity receives Awards for All funding
CSNIPs (Children with Special Needs in Pre-School), based in Comrie, Fife, has received £8,740 from the Big Lottery Fund. The charity enables and supports the inclusion in safe and satisfying pre-school play of Fife children with additional support needs.
Bill Walker, MSP for Dunfermline, welcomed the news: “I’m very happy CSNIPs has secured such a substantial Awards for All grant from the Big Lottery.
“The charity fulfils an important role in helping pre-school children in Fife who require additional support. The positive impact of CSNIPs can be life-changing for families, not only by helping to teach children social skills, but also by giving parents confidence that their children are receiving the correct care.
“CSNIPs has helped an increasing number of children over the twenty-plus years since its establishment, so it’s good to see the charity receive support to carry out its work.”
The project meets the Awards for All outcomes of “People have better chances in life” and “People and Communities are healthier”. CSNIPs will use the grant to fund sessional fees for two workers.
