BF Adventure is delighted to announce that BBC Children in Need has awarded them a grant of £53,783 over 2 years. This grant will fund the delivery and development of their LDD (Learning Difficulty and Disability) provision which will help make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people right here in Cornwall.
This grant has been made possible thanks to the generosity of the public. £31.1 million was raised on Appeal night 2013 and BBC Children in Need have since announced that this total has risen to a record breaking £49.6 million.
BF Adventure have been running LDD programmes for 25 years, the unique setting and very skilled staff provide excellent support for families including short breaks and family adventure days. The recent economy has seen government funding reduced in many areas and the provision was at risk. With the support of BBC Children in Need BF Adventure will be able to continue reaching out to people with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities in Cornwall by funding the support, delivery and development of their programme and provide support to children in need.
Adrian Richards, CEO at BF Adventure said; “We could not reach out to the young people in Cornwall without the support of BBC Children in Need. This grant will go on to change the lives of so many young people and their families giving them the support they need.”
BBC Children in Need funding relies on the energy and commitment of thousands of fundraisers and supporters across the UK who donate their time and money to support the Appeal. Whether its cake sales, wearing pyjamas to school or having a song and dance, every penny of the money raised goes towards supporting projects across the UK.
All grants go to projects working with children and young people living in the UK who may be affected by homelessness, neglect, abuse or poverty, or those who have faced challenges in their lives such as serious illness, disabilities and psychological disorders.
BF Adventure is now recruiting for someone with appropriate skills and a passion for supporting disabled and disadvantaged young people to help promote, maintain and support this provision. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01326 340912
