Boost for D&G LGBT Plus

DUMFRIES and Galloway LGBT Plus are continuing to support their community during the Coronavirus crisis, thanks to National Lottery funding. D&G LGBT Plus have received £23,702 from The National Lottery Community Fund to help people effected by COVID-19. D&G LGBT Plus already have a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund to support the delivery of counselling and support across the region. This additional money will cover costs associated with their community response to the current crisis. The Service Manager at D&G LGBT Plus said: “The additional money will help reach wider into the community, allowing for more support to the LGBTQI community.” Neil Ritch, Scotland Director, The National Lottery Community Fund, said: “In these uncertain times our priority is to ensure that National Lottery money continues to flow to charities, voluntary sector organisations and grassroots groups. "I would like to congratulate D&G LGBT Plus on the work they are doing. Theirs is an important project that will support people now during the current crisis, and in the future when they can physically come back together to make great things happen in their community.” Over the next six months, The National Lottery Community Fund are prioritising grant application for community activity related to COVID-19.
