FUNDRAISING NEWS: Private trust to give £250k to disability and asylum groups

The Barrow Cadbury Trust has launched a £250,000 grant to help fund disability and asylum projects in local communities.

The one-off fund follows a major audit of the trust's work in the areas of asylum and immigration, resettlement, disability and inclusion.

The money will be channelled into a small number of refugee-led projects and local voluntary activities led by disabled people.

"Our pilot programmes in asylum and immigration, and disability and inclusion have built networks across our funded projects and demonstrated good practice that has empowered individuals and whole communities,

said Sukhvinder Stubbs, director at the Barrow Cadbury Trust.

"The pilot programmes also created opportunities for projects to talk directly to policy makers, and this new funding programme builds on that work and takes it a step further."
