Welcome to June's NICE news! As we come towards the end of the school year we are looking back at our achievements in services, with a special thank you to some of our recent funders. You will be gaining an insight into how one of our newest members of staff, Leah, has settled into NICE with her blog post. We will also be looking towards the future with upcoming opportunities from our training team. Do you know anyone that is looking to do a degree? We are looking for future Conductors, with places to train available on our degree course this year!
Despite all the disruption from COVID-19 we are proud to say that all our children are fully back at base and in the swing of their learning. They have worked so hard on developing their skills but more importantly having fun alongside their friends. Our focus on making movement meaningful and enjoyable can be seen in all our activities and to see our children progress week by week is a true testament to their hard work. 

Our adults continue to access face to face or remote sessions and have also challenged themselves to focus on developing their movement skills. Our CE sessions have been a lifeline to so many people over this time and we have welcomed a number of new people to join us in recent weeks.

Hospital Saturday Fund 
We are thrilled to have received a grant of £2,000 from the Hospital Saturday Fund towards our New Steps to Stroke Recovery Project. This programme is designed to guide stroke survivors through tasks to move learning to the next stage of recovery and will help to fully fund 83 sessions on this programme, throughout 2021. Thank you to the Trustees for their continued support of our work.

Foyle Foundation 
At the end of May, the Foyle Foundation awarded NICE a transformative grant of £20,000 towards our Milestone Club, a project that is the most important starting point in the journey for a family of a disabled child. The Milestone Club is free to families and this grant will fund 172 sessions in total, to local families in real need. Heartfelt thanks to the Trustees for once again supporting our work for very young children and helping us to continue our free early years' services.

Global's Make Some Noise
NICE's two-year grant from Global's Make Some Noise has just come to a close and we are delighted to share that through this partnership, they have helped us to support nearly 100 local children aged 0-5 years, and their families. This grant has enabled us to sustain these free services for families faced with disability and has provided financial stability through these challenging times, as a result of COVID-19. We are so grateful for this opportunity and for the fantastic support of the Global community. Thank you so much again to all involved.
