Investment theme: Moving on from violence
to contribute towards running two Trauma Training days.
Year of grant: 2016
Amount awarded: £1,999
The grant will pay for 2 days of specialist trauma training (£1200), catering (£75), volunteer expenses (£75), staff costs (2 workers, 12hrs/worker @ £18.75/hr = £450) and a contribution towards room hire (2 days @ £144/day = £288, £188 requested). Twenty volunteers, 10 new, will be provided with the training in February 2017 which will enable them to better support 156 vulnerable service users throughout the year and provide emergency and crisis support via the helpline to individuals experiencing or at risk of trauma. The current level of staff and volunteer capacity means that resources are stretched, the training will increase the capacity of individual volunteers and the organisation. The staff members will coordinate, evaluate and support the delivery of the training.
