The Big Lottery Fund has supported Rosemount Lifelong Learning in a number of ways through the years. In 2012 we received £1.1 million to build the new Learning & Event Space on Royston Road.
In 2010, The Big Lottery Fund made a video to show the impact of the work Rosemount Lifelong Learning does in the local community. BIG’s Investing in Communities programme funded projects with the key outcome being that “Lone parents, kinship carers, families at risk, step families and disadvantaged families are more resilient and have improved relationships.”
The Big Lottery Fund supported and continuously support Rosemount’s work with the local community. This video focuses on the work supporting young and disadvantaged parents.
“When single mum Leanne Quigley lost her partner in a tragic accident she felt like her world had collapsed around her. Trying to deal with her loss in a new house, after years of living in temporary accommodation, Leanne struggled to overcome her depression and the stresses of bringing up her young daughter alone. Life was to change, however, when her health visitor put her in touch with Rosemount Lifelong Learning Centre, which supports young and disadvantaged parents in Glasgow to develop coping strategies and techniques to help them deal with their situation. After completing the six month course at Rosemount, Leanne has new friends, a newfound confidence and a career plan in place.”
This year 2016, The Big Lottery Fund has supported Rosemount Lifelong Learning once again.
Big Lottery Fund Scotland Chair, Maureen McGinn said: “I am delighted that Rosemount Lifelong Learning has been successful in securing a Big Lottery Fund grant. The funding will make a big difference where it is needed most and I wish Rosemount Lifelong Learning every success as it goes on to develop and expand its project for the benefit of their local community.”
