Foundation receives funding for its work in Scotland
12 January 2021
The Parent-Infant Foundation is delighted to announce new financial support from three Scottish funders to enable further development work in Scotland. This follows a successful scoping phase through 2020.
Cattanach, The Charles Gordon Foundation and The William Grant Foundation are joining forces to back the work of the Parent-Infant Foundation during 2021-2022.
This funding will assist the Foundation in all aspects of its mission to support the growth of infant mental health services across Scotland. As well as providing bespoke support to two Health Boards in their infant mental health service development, we are thrilled to be launching the Scottish Infant Mental Health Development Community: a platform to bring together practitioners from across the sector and to provide support and access to expertise.
Beckie Lang, CEO of the Parent-Infant Foundation said:
“We are delighted to have this support from three funders who really focus on making sure communities in the most need in Scotland, and especially those in the early years, can thrive. This contribution will allow us to bring together and build on the work of the community of specialised parent-infant teams looking after babies and their families, and really shine a light on the developing infant mental health services across Scotland. We are looking forward to continuing to work with the infant mental health community into 2021 and beyond”
