How this project supported Ragdoll Foundation aims
This lively community group caught the trustees’ attention with their light-touch approach, and the unselfconscious use of “joyful” and “enjoyment” in their small grant application – essential qualities as children and communities started to get “back to normal” post-lockdown. The focus on inclusion was strong: engaging local families, some of whom had children who were neurodiverse or had other additional needs.
