Gannett Foundation Award

Great News!! – Silver Birch have been chosen as the only Scottish recipient of an award of £10,000 from the owner of the The Evening Times newspaper, The Gannett Foundation. The Foundation helps to improve lives in the many communities served by Gannett Co., Inc. and beyond.  Since its inception, Gannett Foundation has given more than $170 million to thousands of charitable projects across the United States and the United Kingdom. We will be using the award to purchase another minibus in 2013.

Expansion Project Updates

Over the past six months, we have been moving forward with our large scale expansion of Silver Birch. This has been the culmination of almost five years hard work and planning, with many fundraising efforts to achieve the required £330k project budget.

We are now nearing the end of this stage, and are about to start a new chapter for Silver Birch. The expansion project should be completed in the next few weeks, with the staff and clients being able to move in soon after. The new facilities include; a large canteen space with brand new purpose built kitchen with state of the art appliances, male and female toilet and changing facilities, additional storage rooms as well as a completely new bespoke suite of offices.

We will be hosting an official opening event soon when work is complete and will be extending our invite to all funders, partners, clients and families to come in to view the new premises. Watch this space for dates!
