In August 2016 Paces was successful in securing £15,500 from the Peoples Postcode Trust to support our adult services programmes.

The People’s Postcode Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s

Postcode Lottery.

The grant funding we have received has enabled Paces to deliver new Conductive Education programmes supporting individuals with Parkinson’s and people who have survived a stroke. 

In January 2017, 12 individuals started programmes that:

  • Aid Daily Living
  • Promote Self-Reliance
  • Nurture Independence
  • Support Lifelong Learning
  • Encourage Leisure and Recreational Activity
  • Foster a Sense of Wellbeing
  • Improve Quality Of Life

Our programmes have supported people to undertake (and in some cases re-learn) a range of daily living tasks; supporting people to be as independent as possible.  Individuals have found a range of supportive tasks focused around walking, balance, laying, grasping, holding, eating and drinking extremely beneficial.

Funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery will enable Paces to support many people for 12 months and beyond.

We can’t thank the People’s Postcode Lottery enough!
