Amount awarded: £1862
The grant will cover the cost of providing a series of externally facilitated development training for the 8 management committee members. They will split in to 4 pairs and will each choose between finance, research, social impacts/outputs and monitoring and evaluation depending on their area of interest and /or limited expertise to ensure all topics are covered. The board have identified that now they have been operating successfully for a year and in order to progress it further in, they are in need of support to update their financial management skills, to conduct research into the development of new project ideas for women in the local area and develop a basic strategic plan for the sustainability and growth of Fusion Bites. They will also receive one to one development support and a bi-lingual interpreter for those that require it.
