Dyslexia and Dyspraxia Support has received £5000 from Santander Foundation to fund the implementation of a brand new helpline in Mid-Ulster.
Santander Foundation offers grants to UK registered charities for projects that help disadvantaged people in local communities.
Dyslexia and Dyspraxia Support promotes effective teaching approach for individuals with dyslexia, dyspraxia or any related educational disability. To provide better diagnostic and treatment facilities to them, the grant will enable the charity to set up a helpline with a comprehensive range of advice to the patients.
Gerry Lynch Chairperson at DADS said: “The grant will be a life saver for many people who have no-one else to turn to. Now they can be sure that they will be able to talk to someone who understands their problem and who can put them in the direction of help either from our own group or other local voluntary and statutory provision. We are very grateful to the Santander Foundation”
John Feeney, Branch Manager at Santander’s Magherafelt branch said:“The Santander Foundation makes hundreds of donations every year to good causes throughout the UK. Our branch is committed to playing a key part in the community and we are delighted to be supporting Dyslexia & Dyspraxia Support, and hope the donation makes a real difference to local people.”
