National Lottery Community Fund Award

Funding Received!

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funds from the National Lottery Community Fund Northern Ireland, to cover the costs of our Northern Ireland Family Day in 2020. 

Our family days are a great opportunity to meet other families and catch up with latest news. We returned to Northern Ireland in October 2019, for the first time in 6 years so it's fantastic to receive help to allow us to return again this year. 

The National Lottery Community Fund is one of the biggest community funders in NI and are proud to award money raised by National Lottery players in communities all across Northern Ireland

National Lottery Community Fund Award

We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been awarded £7401 by the National Lottery Community Fund to develop our Volunteering scheme. 

Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do at SOFT UK.  A member-led charity, we are governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees.  Our support service is led entirely by SOFT UK families who volunteer to share their time and experiences to help other families.  Our family days are run almost entirely by volunteers, from those who manage the booking process, to the speakers on the day, to the people putting together the Remembrance activities.  Our social media accounts are run mostly by volunteers.  Wherever you turn in SOFT UK, there will be a volunteer there to assist you. 

This money will help us to spend some time developing our Volunteer recruitment process, to recruit and train more volunteers to increase our capacity as an organisation and to offer vital training and support to our team.  

The better our volunteers are, the better SOFT UK is.
