The story so far:
In 2009, ILS successfully participated in a Governance Review, strengthening the ILS Board, to draw down investment funding from Futurebuilders England. Subsequently, ILS has successfully delivered its first contracts, the DCSF Play Volunteer Project in Eastwood, and an ESF funded NEETs project.
ILS most significant contract to date is to deliver activities for disabled children and young people in the Rotherham, through the Aiming High for Disabled Children Programme. ILS is working with a range of service providers from the Children, Young People and Families’ Voluntary Sector Consortium to deliver an exciting package of quality activities. Many of the Consortium partners had gained valuable experience delivering activities for disabled children and young people through an AHDC pilot project, and this experience helped ILS to utilise the input from the disabled children and young people to inform the design of our programme.
