Falkirk Homeless Project (FHP) initially received £5000 of funding but were lucky enough to see that increase by a further £2000.

The charity, which provides assistance and support to people who have been homeless and are now moving into a tenancy, has now been able to help even more people who are struggling to cope with increased energy costs and other bills.

A FHP spokesperson said: “Thank you for everyone’s help and support in distributing the winter fund grants. We managed to negotiate the original £5000 up to £7000 and it has all been distributed.
