That this House congratulates Lanarkshire Therapy Support on securing £9,500 from the Big Lottery Fund's Award For All Scotland grant; acknowledges the work the group has undertaken to provide support for people with long-term health conditions; celebrates the group's endeavours to relieve the needs of persons who have suffered physical injuries, their families or carers in the Strathclyde area of Scotland by the provision of care, support and advice so that their conditions of life may be improved; commends the group on using their grant to deliver a functional aging assessment programme to 100 local residents over the age of 50 which will identify results in strength, mobility, balance and flexibility; and notes that this information will allow the project to provide advice and information to the residents on how they can stay active and mobile for longer without the fear of overload or injury.
