Powys Groups People & Places Success

Two Powys groups are celebrating the news that they have been awarded Big Lottery People & Places Funding.

Machynlleth, Community Action Machynlleth and District are awarded £71,916 to expand a drop-in facility for people experiencing mental health issues, and will enable them to benefit from a support network as well as therapy through activities.

The Bracken Trust, Llandrindod Wells have been awarded £214,218 to provide enhanced nursing care, complementary therapies and counselling support, expand its home visit service and introduce an out of hours service. The project will also promote cancer awareness through networking with local GPs, schools, hospices and focus on specific under-represented groups such as agricultural workers. The three year grant will be used for salaries, project delivery expenses including transport and overhead costs.

The People and Places programme awards grants of between £5,001 and £1 million for a broad range of community projects. For further information about the programme and how you can apply for funding, please visit
