A service designed to ease financial stress for people in the north-east has been given a £350,000 boost.
Scottish Huntington’s Association (SHA) secured the cash to support its Grampian Financial Wellbeing Service from five different sources.
The money will allow the service to keep running for another three years.
It works with individuals and families living with Huntington’s disease (HD) to advise them on benefits and how to financially plan.
John Eden, SHA chief executive, said: “The debilitating nature of HD means that people’s working lives are cut short, leaving them relying on a variety of benefits.
“This service is proving vital in helping families through a national network of specialists, a world-leading youth support team, as well as its finance arm.”
