Local organisations throughout the Strathmartine area have benefited from hundreds of thousands of pounds in funding in the last year, a new report has revealed.
At the annual general meeting of Strathmartine Community Regeneration Forum (CRF), Alice Bovill confirmed the full allocation of funding for 2017/18 had been spent.
She said: “Over the last year our allocated funding of £140,250 has been used for the benefits of the communities.
“Many of these applications come in towards the end of the financial year and we have managed to allocate all our grant for 2017/18.
“I would like to thank all the local representatives involved with the forum who supported the process and developed and maintained the many positive improvements in their community.”
Included in the funding was £55,471 used for environmental improvements and £56,342 for youth diversionary funding.
An additional £28,437 was spent on small grants projects such as breakfast provision at Baldragon and funding to help One Parent Family Scotland work with vulnerable single families living in poverty in areas such as Kirkton and Downfield.
Community organisations such as the Kirkton Community Safety Partnership and the Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre were also on hand to speak to locals about their work.
