SELFA Staff helped by Yorkshire, West Riding Freemasons
SELFA Activity Coordinator staff will benefit thanks to a grant from Yorkshire, West Riding Freemasons.
The generous grant of £3,000 to SELFA will help to fund our staff who provide high quality
clubs, workshops and trips with the objectives of encouraging independence, supporting
positive relationships, building self-esteem and giving the children a sense of belonging. We
employ three full-time Activity-Co-ordinators for Primary and Youth who are responsible for
running activities. They also spend considerable time planning the programme of events,
liaising with other agencies, attending Common Assessment Framework meetings and
offering support to parents.
The grant from Yorkshire, West Riding Freemasons comes through the Masonic Charitable Foundation, which is funded by Freemasons, their families and friends from across England and Wales.
Emma Pears, Chief Officer at SELFA said:
“SELFA is a growing charity receiving increasing numbers of referrals for disadvantaged children and young people aged 4-19 years. We are reliant on grants and donations to fund these posts and we are most grateful to Yorkshire, West Riding Freemasons for their most generous support.”
Keith Tolan from Yorkshire, West Riding Freemasons said:
“We are very pleased to be able to help SELFA who do such an outstanding job supporting vulnerable, disadvantaged and disabled children and young people through clubs, workshops, trips and residentials.”
