We were thrilled to be awarded the funding from Morrisons Foundation and will be using the funds to sustain and expand our Roots and Branches programme. This nurturing group runs weekly and supports young people in building on their self-esteem and confidence, form relationships with their peers and to focus on improving their mental health.
We have been running this group with high school young people for over a year now, and the funding will enable us to take this group away on a residential in April which they are very much looking forward to.
We are also now able, with the additional funding from Morrisons, to expand the group to run a regular “Mini Roots and Branches” for primary age children. We have seen how successful the RnB has been for the older young people and now plan to roll this out for younger children. We have trialled this on a small scale and it has proven to be a success, and we can see the need for this through the referrals we receive for our Intensive 1:1 Support service.
Thanks to Kerrianne from Morrisons Granton for dropping in with a cheque for £18168
Support like this means a great deal to the project.

We would like to thank all the family and friends of Allan Black who attended his funeral on Friday and raised £180 in his collection and has been kindly donated to Pilton Youth & Children's Project.
Allan worked as a handyman and cleaner at the project between 2015 - 2016 and we have happy memories of his time with us.
Our condolences go out to all the family and his friends. We will make sure the money raised will go directly to the children who attend the project.
