At a time when the country is seeing steep rises in the cost of living, many families, particularly those with children, are experiencing worrying financial pressures.

River Clyde Homes is pleased to be able to help after receiving grant awards totalling £14,900.

We successfully applied for, based on customer referrals, and received £8900 from the Cash for Kids Winter Support Fund to help low income families with basic essentials such as food, fuel and warm clothing. We were then awarded a further £6000 from the STV Appeal Scottish Government Winter Support Fund to top up the funds available to support families in need.

We will use this sum of £14,900 in grant funding to support 240 children from low income families who will each receive a voucher.

Elaine Cannon, Senior Housing Manager at RCH said: “We are delighted to have been successful in our further bid for funding from Cash for Kids as well as the additional funding received from the STV appeal. This is great news for the local community and the total funding of £14,900 means 240 children of low-income families will receive a voucher up the value of £70 to purchase basic essentials.”
