Based in Arbroath, Angus, Skilz Academy works to improve the lives of those experiencing poverty, mental health issues and social isolation. The charity delivers creative projects, community sport, walking groups for the elderly, digital skills programmes and runs a community café. Its series of user-involved working groups ensures services reflect the needs of the community. The Fore’s funding will catalyse the opening of a new AstroTurf pitch which will meet significant local need for an outdoor space and improve the organisation’s financial sustainability by providing an additional income stream.
