Disability Information Scotland is delighted to receive Scottish Government funding
Disability Information Scotland is delighted to receive Section 10 funding from the Scottish Government to enable us to continue providing our information services throughout Scotland to disabled people, carers and people who work in the sector.
More than £1 million has been awarded to voluntary organisations to help support and develop social and community care services in Scotland.
Chair of Disability Information Scotland, Anne Hastie said, “We very much appreciate the support of the Scottish Government which enables us to deliver a service to the most vulnerable citizens of Scotland.”
The allocation is part of the Section 10 grants scheme and together with on-going grants, brings current Scottish Government investment in the scheme to £2.82 million.
Aileen Campbell, Minister for Public Health said:
“I’m pleased to announce this latest round of funding for organisations which play such a crucial role in supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.
“The work they do spans a range of issues but all of them make a huge difference in helping us build a healthier, more inclusive and fairer Scotland.
