Walnut Tree-based charity MK SNAP has been awarded £20,000 over the next two years from the Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales.
The charity provides young adults with learning and physical disabilities the opportunity to learn employment and life skills through real work tasks.
The funding will help to pay for new courses being developed by the centre in art and drama, sport and excercise, offce skills and healthy lifestyles.
MK SNAP operations director, Ian Farmer said: “Many of our clients are excluded from the more formal, mainstream training and employment options due to their current ability levels and emotional and behaviour difficulties .
“We are the only organisation in Milton Keynes offering this type of training to our client group.
“However, our running costs are not covered by the payments received from the referrals for our services. It is not our policy to refuse any one place based purely on an inability to pay.”
