SNP BOOSTS INVESTMENT IN AFTER SCHOOL AND HOLIDAY CLUBS

SNP BOOSTS INVESTMENT IN AFTER SCHOOL AND HOLIDAY CLUBS

Published date : 09 May, 2023

 

Angela Constance MSP has welcomed new funding from the Scottish Government to support the provision of after school and holiday clubs for Scotland’s most disadvantaged communities.

West Lothian Council will be able to apply for a share of £4.5 million to help support families in Almond Valley through the Tory cost of living crisis by increasing access to affordable and quality childcare.

First Minister Humza Yousaf announced details of the funding while convening a national anti-poverty summit in Edinburgh this week.

The funding will help councils like West Lothian Council to improve indoor and outdoor areas with school estates in alignment with community needs.

Commenting, MSP Angela Constance said:

"This additional investment from the Scottish Government is sure to support many working parents in Almond Valley during the summer holidays and term time - improving access to easily available childcare is key when it comes to tackling child poverty.

“Under the leadership of First Minister Humza Yousaf, this SNP Government is delivering where it matters during this Tory cost of living crisis. From taking action on fuel poverty to increasing social security benefits, it’s clear for all to see that tackling poverty is a priority.
