Foyer Families is a part-time, free, learning and employability course, starting soon and currently open for referrals.

This unique, and completely free, course is aimed at any parents/carers of children under 12 years of age, who wish to undertake flexible learning and gain nationally recognised qualifications, whilst balancing family life.

It’s a 16 week long part time course, delivered Tuesday to Thursday from 9.30am-2.30pm. They offer courses online and face to face, which allows that flexibility for parents.

NHS Grampian Endowment Fund is the official charity of NHS Grampian, and safeguards donations made by patients, families and users of health services.

As the leading health charity for Grampian, the Endowment Fund has strict criteria to make sure donations are only used to enhance the services that NHS Grampian provides, and not to replace statutory responsibilities.

Everything the Endowment Fund supports must be for the benefit of patients or the health of the local community.
