ROSEANNA WELCOMES NEW FUNDING FOR CARE-EXPERIENCED YOUNG PEOPLE

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed news that care-experienced young people in Perth & Kinross will benefit from £242,400.00 of funding. 

The Scottish Government has announced that the Care-Experienced Children and Young People Fund would increase from £8 million to £12 million in this academic year. 

The fund is designed to support the educational attainment of young people, up to the age of 26, who have been in care.  Projects as diverse as mentoring programmes, counselling services and driving lessons have been supported.

Roseanna said:

"Improving the education and life chances of all our children and young people is the defining mission of the SNP in government.

"Young people living in, or leaving, the care system often face additional barriers to learning  which is why this funding can be so vital. 

"I'm delighted that care-experienced young people in Perth & Kinross will benefit from getting on for quarter of a million pounds of targeted funding this year, with a substantial increase in funding right across Scotland."
