A north-east charity has received funding to deliver a project which will support children with sensory loss.
North East Sensory Services (NESS), was awarded £61,701 over three years from Children In Need for its Young Persons Sensory Service (YPSS) programme, which works with those aged up to 18.
As well as taking part in residential stays, staff work with young people in smaller, relaxed groups to support them with daily obstacles, as well as providing assistance with schools and employment.
Chief executive of NESS Graham Findlay said: “We welcome this latest funding for our young persons project, which does crucial work in supporting the youngest members of our community to ensure they achieve their full potential.
“The programme aims to give youngsters access to a range of activities which they may have thought outwith their ability, proving to them that nothing is off-limits.”
The charity recently received a £15,000 grant from Aberdeen City Council.
Both grants will go towards supporting staffing and resources.
