A group which works with vulnerable people in Aberdeen has been given a cash boost of £392,000.
The Workers’ Educational Association was awarded £392,006 by the Big Lottery Fund Scotland.
The group, based on King Street, will use the money for health and wellbeing activities for vulnerable and socially isolated people, including those living with mental health issues and substance abuse, learning disabilities, and those going through the criminal justice system.
Kevin Stewart MSP for Aberdeen Central said: “This is excellent news for Aberdeen because £392,006 will go a long way to helping people who really need it.
“It’s great to see Big Lottery Funding recognise the brilliant work of WEA here in Aberdeen and I look forward to seeing the good work this funding will help bring.”
