The organisation pitched for a slice of the Aviva Community Fund which offers grants to community projects that make a difference - and it needed public votes to succeed.
Now the manager for Community Family Care, Sasha Brown, has been told its Art Journal Project won enough votes to get through.
The project supports children who have difficulty coping, to express their thoughts and feelings through art, boosting their emotional wellbeing and promoting positive mental health. The aim is to run 12 groups across Gloucestershire.
The local scheme was nominated by Blackdown Financial Services.
Sasha said: “There were five million votes cast in the first round, so to get this far is a real achievement. We couldn’t have done it without Blackdown and our lovely supporters. So fingers crossed we make it past the last fence.”
Community Family Care, based in Staunton, helps families, children and young people in need of support. It seeks to improve parents’ confidence, help with routines to get children to school, or more complex support dealing with challenging behaviours at home.
The winners of the Aviva Community Fund will be announced in January.
