The Dundee and Angus ADHD support group has been given a £13,478 grant from the Scottish Children’s Lottery.

The award will help fund the charity’s Youth Transition to Work project, enabling it to further develop a range of challenging activities and work experience opportunities for young people.

The charity supports children, young people, parents and carers suffering from and affected by ADHD and helps to raise awareness and acceptance of the condition.

Alison Zerouk, project manager at the support group, said: “The new Youth Transition to Work project is a really exciting and innovative project joining new activities to work experience.

“We hope it will provide individual experiences as well as group activity so that each person can learn about things they are really interested in and use new skills to get them into work or college.”

The Scottish Children’s Lottery launched in October 2016 to try to raise money for children in Scotland.

Proceeds go towards helping to improve the lives of children all across the country.
