Investment theme: Building skills and confidence
to contribute towards the cost of writing and delivering a bespoke training programme for the Women's Group.
Amount awarded: £848
This application is towards the cost of setting up a bespoke 40 week training programme to help the newly formed women’s group build self-awareness, resilience, confidence and self-esteem. The idea has come from suggestions in the recently completed Community Plan and a group of women who have been coming to the café have already started an informal group which just meets at the café when it’s open. The group would be aimed at women struggling with supporting others (children, parents, partners etc) but who would like and benefit from support for themselves in this role. The group would offer a space to talk about problems and issues and receive some peer support. However, rather than having no real focus to the group, they would like to participate in a structured but flexible training programme that will be facilitated by an experienced trainer/facilitator. Total request is for the facilitator’s time (£1,500) and some art materials (£196) with £500 already being secured for room hire.
