The Big Lottery Fund have recently chosen to support ECHO. Our Inclusive Volunteering project will run for the next five years.

People with learning disabilities benefit enormously from volunteering. This National Lottery funding will help us to provide them with the support and training they need, creating even more fantastic and inspiring volunteers in our local community.

ECHO supports people with learning difficulties to volunteer – and as part of our latest funding announcement, they’ve received a grant of more than £360k of National Lottery funding to create even more opportunities for people to take part in new activities, learn new skills and make new friends, helping to increase their confidence and self-esteem.
