RCET to Receive £5,000 for Coronavirus Crisis Intervention Fund

We are delighted to be receiving £5,000 from the Community Response, Recovery & Resilience Fund, managed by Foundation Scotland towards our Coronavirus Crisis intervention work for Armed Forces families.

The grant will go directly towards our Crisis Intervention Fund so we can continue to support Armed Forces and veteran families who are being negatively affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic and countrywide lock down.

We have been responding to families affected by the crisis by providing food vouchers, paying for utilities bills and supplying children’s clothing to ensure that they can stay warm, clothed and fed for as long as this crisis continues. 

Karen Stock, Children & Families Support Service Coordinator said,“We are delighted to receive this fund at such a critical moment in our support of Armed Forces and veteran families. Many families are struggling financially due to the COVID crisis and this grant will allow us to reach many more deserving applicants of our Coronavirus Crisis Fund. “

If you, or a family you know could benefit from some help during this difficult time, then please contact Karen at familysupport@rcet.org.uk or call us on 0131 322 7350.
