An Aberdeen charity has been given a £15,000 funding boost.
The Denis Law Legacy Trust, a community programme aimed at promoting participation, social inclusion and community integration, was given the cash injection by the Scottish Children’s Lottery.
The Trust currently works in conjunction with Robert Gordon University to deliver the Streetsports programme in regeneration areas of the city.
The programme targets hotspots of youth antisocial behaviour in some of the city’s most deprived areas.
As well as the Streetsports initiative, the charity engages 16,000 young people every year.
Mark Williams, chief operating officer of the Trust, said: “The support from the Scottish Children’s Lottery is fantastic and really helps us to provide Streetsport as a platform for young people to realise their potential.
“This funding will help even more young people engage with our employability programming and continue onto what they see as their own positive destination in life.”
The Trust is also responsible for Cruyff court, the first unbookable 4G football pitch in Scotland.
