Big Lottery Fund

This is a project by a registered charity and company limited by guarantee in Whitehaven, Cumbria. The organisation will use the funding to extend an existing pilot and set up a workshop scheme for men over the age of 50 to repair, restore and then sell furniture. This will enable men who are socially isolated, have mental or physical health issues, special needs, low confidence or in recovery from drug and alcohol problems to share skills, reduce isolation and access peer-to-peer support.

Disclaimer: The date shown here is the date that the decision was made to award the grant, not the date on which it was paid. Some grants may be paid in stages, and later payments may be conditional on completing earlier funded work. In some cases, grants for capital projects may be reduced or increased if the underlying project costs change. The value shown here should not, therefore, be considered immutable.
