The Big Lottery Fund supports CBF

The CBF is delighted to announce a successful funding bid to the Big Lottery Fund. The funding is for the next three years and will enable us to reach out to more families, and support family carers to share information with each other.


The grant will be used to expand our Family Linking Scheme, appoint Local Champions and to strengthen our social media and email networks. We will be able to train and support family carer as Family Link volunteers to provide a listening ear to other families , and as Local Champions to attend local events and  help us reach more families who need our support.


The ultimate goal is for more family carers to be empowered to share practical information with each other and respond to challenging behaviour effectively.


The grant is for a total of £299,675, and the project will run from April 2013 to March 2016.


There will be more news about our progress in the coming months and information on how you can be involved as a volunteer. Check back soon to see how the project is progressing.
