Brading: To support vital and often unheralded work
Cabinet member for children’s services, Councillor Paul Brading, said:
“There are many organisations on the Island that undertake vital and often unheralded work in the community in support of children with disabilities and/or additional needs.
“We would strongly encourage them to apply for help through this scheme, which is designed to assist with equipment to improve inclusion and the opportunities for young people.”
