£5k grant awarded to support vital language development project in Birmingham

A grant of £5,000 from the Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust has been awarded to our ‘Language Through Play’ project at Holland House Children’s Centre which is part of the Birmingham Forward Steps Children’s Centre’s service. 

The Language through Play project provides speech and language support for children and their families, where the child has speech and language delay,

The new grant has been awarded as part of a Covid-19 response fund to enable colleagues to purchase resources including 200 exploring boxes and 40 chatter bag packs, which will encourage language development in very young children who have not developed as normally would be expected due to Covid-19 restrictions around attendance at support and playgroups or early years settings.
