Big Lottery Fund Success for Double Impact

16th February 2016

Today the Big Lottery Fund announced how £1.5 million in lottery funding is to be awarded to 125 groups across the Midlands to help improve local communities and the lives of people most in need.

We are delighted to report that Double Impact has been successful in securing a Big Lottery Fund grant of £298,160 to further support the work of Café Sobar and Recovery Recruitment in providing a safe social hub for people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.

‘We are delighted to be awarded this grant, which will enable us to expand the workplace training and employability opportunities for the beneficiaries of the project. The grant will ensure that Café Sobar continues to act as a safe, supportive and sustainable social hub for people in recovery from addictions and provide opportunities to break out of isolation, rebuild social networks and connect with the wider community.’

– Graham Miller, CEO of Double Impact
