Press Release: Claire Perry welcomes the announcement that Tidworth NSPCC Centre is to receive £800,000 in the latest Budget

The Tidworth NSPCC Centre which offers support for families and children, particularly for the challenges of military life has received funding of over £800,000 in the latest budget.

This funding which come from the LIBOR banking fines, will enable the Tidworth Centre to continue to its range of programmes for families and young people for the next three years.  These include support for expectant and new parents; for young people who have family members experiencing mental health issues; and drop-in sessions for parents and children, helping military families lead happy, healthy and productive lives as they serve their country.

Claire Perry MP commented,

 “The Tidworth NSPCC Centre provides incredibly important support for both military families and other local parents and children.  Supporting local Armed Forces families and getting the right resources in place for the thousands of new families relocating to the area over the next few years through the Army Rebasing programme is one of my local campaigning priorities, and this funding which will enable the programmes at the Tidworth NSPCC Centre to continue, is especially welcomed."
