A Bradford health project has received a £10,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund’s Awards for All programme to buy a mobile clinic for homeless people and street workers.

Bevan Healthcare CIC project, based in Sunbridge Road, will use it to offer care, mental health support, drug, alcohol and other health advice to vulnerable and hard to reach members of the community.

Dharmendra Kanani, Big Lottery Fund spokesman said: “Awards for All is about making vital funding available for a huge range of good causes as easily as possible. The range of grants we have announced today and the diversity of people they will help, are a great example of the difference National Lottery funding can make.”

Through the Big Lottery Fund’s Awards For All programme, 1,118 community projects are set to benefit from more than £9.7million in good cause funding across the country today. The Awards For All scheme offers grants between £300 and £10,000 to social and environmental projects benefitting communities and people most in need.

A proportion of all the money sequestrated from drug dealers should be used to bolster this project and also a percentage of the millions the government receive from the tax on alcohol.Never mind relying on the big lottery fund.Shameful!!!.

Well done for receiving lottery money for such a worthy cause. I am part of a team that is raising money for a similar charity, http://www.simononth
estreets.co.uk/ that supports rough sleepers in West Yorkshire. Our team ' Real Women of Wharfedale' is taking part in the http://www.5x50.org/ challenge where we agree to cycle, run, swim, zumba... our way through 50 days, for 30 mins a day, or 5km. If you would like to support us in our challenge, go to http://www.justgivin

rfedale. We are aiming to raise just £10 a day, so if you could give £1 towards this fantastic charity, that would be great! Thanks
