Growing our services thanks to National Lottery funding

Growing our services thanks to National Lottery funding

Wed 09 March

Our support offering has grown massively over the past 8 months since we received a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund.
Back in July 2021, YBTC received £68,956 in funding from The National Lottery.

The main aims of our project, which started in July 2021 and carries on until June 2022, were to increase the amount of support groups, counselling sessions and family events we offer.

When we first embarked on the project, we aimed to increase our yearly support group provision from 26 groups in 2020/21 to 42 groups in 2021/22.

Just 8 months in, we've already delivered 64 group sessions across the region.

By the end of the 12 month project we're projected to have successfully offered a total of 112 support groups (that's a 330% increase from the previous year!)

In terms of counselling, initially we aimed to double the quantity of sessions offered from 114 in 2020/21 to 228 in 2021/22.

8 months in we have already offered 243 counselling sessions either in person or over the phone, and are expected to undertake around 350 sessions by the end of the 12-month period since the project began.

We are now proudly supporting over 700 people across the Yorkshire region who have been impacted by a brain tumour.

This would not have been possible without funding from the National Lottery. We'd like to say a big thank you to the TNL Community Fund.
