The Isle of Wight’s Suicide Prevention and Intervention charity has been awarded funding thanks to a partnership grant between HM Government and the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery.
SPIIOW has received £15,763 to spend on equipment and support with a record management system to better support the trustees and support volunteers in the work they undertake.
Sarah Adams of Suicide Prevention & Intervention IOW says:
“All of us at SPIIOW are hugely grateful to the National Lottery COVID-19 Fund for their support during this difficult time. Like most Island charities we have faced a number of uphill struggles with funding this year due to COVID-19 and our fundraising has been hit very hard.
“This funding will enable us to equipment the awaiting team members with their PPE, keep our vehicle running for the next six months with the help of fuel costs, equipment for our frontline team and to install a record management system that better serves are trustees and support volunteers”.
