Centre 56, a charity based in Liverpool which provides childcare and support for families who have suffered, or are at risk of domestic abuse or a crisis situation, has announced that it has been successful in a £300,000 bid for a Big Lottery Fund grant.

The funding will help to support the centre over the next three years to deliver its key childcare and resilience-building activities as well as developing an approach to new funding, which ensures that services are maintained and grown into the future.

Maria O’Brien of Centre 56 said: “We’re over the moon that we have been successful with the Big Lottery funding. The services we provide are so important to some of the most vulnerable people in our community, as we’re the only nursery to offer this type of support in the city.

“We are delighted that we can continue to offer this highly valued service, and with the help and support of businesses and decision makers across Liverpool, we can continue to raise vital funds to become sustainable over the longer term and broaden our offer to those most in need”.
