The Libertie Project received £1,000 from the Women’s Fund and were also given an additional £2,000 from another donor who also attended our launch night. This money will help Libertie find their own premises to deliver services to women in a safe, secure environment.
The Libertie Project is a social enterprise who work independently with vulnerable groups in the community. They offer arts and craft activities for offenders, those at risk of offending, their families and victims of crime. They aim to improve general health and well being, develop pre-employability skills and reduce re-offending throughout the Highlands.
Following the launch night a working partnership has formed between Libertie and Poverty Alliance. They have attended a government consultation on the effects of the welfare fund and have also been asked to participate in a joint working approach with criminal justice in developing services for women offenders.
Libertie are also going to supply ceramic trinket boxes for Home Start Majik, who also attended our launch night, as part of their volunteer training.
