We at LEAP are delighted to have been part of the journey to creating this beautiful eco-refurbished space for flexible childcare supporting Linwood families and the wider community. We started our joint working with KLAS Care on this project way back in 2016 securing funds through British Airways Carbon Fund and PureLeapfrog to carry out eco-refurbishment and energy efficiency upgrades to the former East Fulton Primary School Janitors house; the bungalow which KLAS Care obtained through council asset transfer after it had lain derelict for many years.
Through the skills and determination of KLAS Care directors Lesley Compston and Kirsty McKenzie; match funding and securing further investment against the initial BA Carbon Funding through LEAP meant the project could grow and add an extension to the building and transform it into the fantastic hub it now is, for childcare and the wider Linwood community. Well done all at KLAS Care C.I.C!
Don’t forget our LEAP Linwood Family Support Project offers free practical assistance focused on Linwood and Johnstone residents who are struggling with fuel bills and comfort at home. If you think you or someone you know could benefit from this programme, please contact LEAP in confidence via our contact form or call us on 01505 612 034.
