Supporting Families with Geeza Break

Geeza Break Charity awarded £2,500 by The Merchants House

Located in the Parkhead area of Glasgow, Geeza Break is a voluntary organisation providing family support and flexible respite services to parents with children aged 0-16 years who live in the East and North East of Glasgow. One of their aims is to provide short-term and flexible support to families experiencing addiction, stress, crisis, or isolation.

In a recent round of funding the Merchants House awarded Geeza Break a grant of £2,500. CEO Doreen Paterson explains how the money “will enable us to support children affected by disability to improve their activity levels, improve their confidence and improve their social skills. It will also support the wider family unit by offering some respite to assist them in their caring roles. Thank you to the Merchants House for this award, it is very much appreciated.”
