We are deeply grateful to those voluntary sector partner organisations which have nominated, or acted as referees to, the individual grant applicants we have supported over the past year and who also carry out important work in their own right as service providers. We encourage all other voluntary organisations in the care and education sectors in the Stirling and Falkirk Council areas to work with us.
