Silver Dreams Scheme awards funds to Sight Support Derbyshire

The Daily Mail and the Big Lottery Fund have joined together to award more than £6million to charities and organisations to help to improve the lives of older people.

This joint initiative, known as the Silver Dreams Fund, is part of a wider campaign to distribute National Lottery grants totalling £110million to inspirational and worthy projects.

Sight Support Derbyshire is one of the charities to benefit from the Silver Dreams Fund and the award will be used to for a project to set up peer support for older people experiencing sight loss.

The Chief Executive of Sight Support Derbyshire, Ges Roulstone said, "We are delighted that the Silver Dreams fund has recognised our excellent work supporting the thousands of blind and partially sighted people throughout Derbyshire. The funding will kickstart a fantastic new initiative that will enable people with sight loss to receive advice and support from people who understand the emotions involved better than anyone else - our service users."
