Thank you to CPSS Supporters

Thank you to all of the supporters that have helped to make the Community Pet Support Scheme possible.

National Lottery Community Fund Grant  

In May 2022 the National Lottery Community Fund has granted the Community Pet Support Scheme £90,000 across the next three years. We are so grateful to the Community Fund and National Lottery Players for this significant contribution towards the Scheme which will help to pay for the salaries of the Animal Care Assistants that provide the care and the Scheme's Coordinator who manages the Scheme and handles referrals, signposting, reviews and care plans. The dedicated and commitment staff team are essential to the success and high levels of care provided by the Scheme. 

This grant is going to make such a huge difference to the lives of our clients and will give us an opportunity to ensure sustainable and long term funding to continue to help clients in the future and help this innovative and lifechanging Scheme to grow.
