Families Out Loud is excited to announce that The National Lottery have awarded us 3 years’ Salary Funding for the two part-time freelance roles of Fundraiser & Marketing Coordinator.

During our first 5 years, all back office functions – including fundraising and marketing –  were carried out solely through the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. In 2023 we recorded over 4,500 volunteer hours, without which the charity could not have continued.

As a growing organisation, we realised that managing the operation solely through volunteer help was unsustainable. In June 2023 we applied to The National Lottery for salary funding and just before Christmas we found out that we had been successful.

This National Lottery grant will enable our continued ability to reach Wiltshire families affected by a loved-one’s drug or alcohol use, supporting them to bravely build a better life.
