LGBT Youth Scotland announced as Scottish Government partner in new funding

Third Sector Strategic Funding Partnerships Announced 

Today the Scottish Government has announced that LGBT Youth Scotland, along with 44 other organisations have been chosen to be a part of a new group known as the Third Sector Strategic Funding Partnership.  Aileen Campbell, Minister for Children and Young People, announced details of the new funding group at a launch in Edinburgh this morning.

LGBT Youth Scotland is delighted to be included in the list of organisation’s chosen and looks forward to working in partnership with the Scottish Government to help make a positive difference to the lives of LGBT young people.

Speaking during a visit to a playroom in the Pilton area of Edinburgh run by Circle Scotland, Minister for Children and Young People Aileen Campbell said: “We are working to make Scotland the best place in the world to grow up, including increasing the level of free early learning and childcare through the Children and Young People Bill, which will save families equivalent to around £700 per child."

“Scottish families already benefit from a wide range of support and the organisations receiving a share of this £10 million will help to improve what is on offer."

“Thanks to our investment, great organisations like Circle, which I am visiting today, will be able to take their work further into the community, helping families in need across Scotland get access to the right information and resources.”
