Community Activities Trust (ACVO)

A fund launched on 6th April 2011 for adults (16+) with learning disabilities called the Community Activities Trust Fund (or CAT Fund for short).

If you, or someone you know, has learning disabilities and is wanting to try something new or challenging – from swimming lessons to sky-diving; art classes to visiting a museum; attending a football match to being an active participant in a club – but can't afford it, the CAT Fund may be able to help.

Community Activities Trust (CAT) will supply financial help to suitable applicants so they can participate in activities they would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience.

The Communities Activities Trust (CAT) are a trust which aims to enable city people with learning disabilities to experience activities in their community. They will supply financial help to suitable applicants so they can participate in activities they would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience.

Tom Cowan, Head of Adults Services, Social Care and Wellbeing said, "We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Community Activities Trust. The Trust is a key component in the transformation of learning disability day services within the City - which is about bringing genuine choice and opportunity to individuals - and they will greatly enhance this by ensuring that individuals and groups will have access to resources which can be used creatively and innovatively."
