Investment theme: Moving on from abuse
to contribute towards the cost of a 48 week activity programme for women.
Amount awarded: £1920
The grant will contribute towards the cost of Instructor Fees for an activity programme for 102 women commencing November 2014 operating in the Centre in Maryhill. The 48 week programme will include weekly 2 hour classes in cookery, drawing and painting and knitting. These classes will provide an opportunity for women to support each other, share skills and experiences in a safe environment and will encourage them to find collective ways of overcoming barriers which isolate and restrict their participation in community life helping them to regain their confidence. Feedback on this programme will be sought from participants, instructors and volunteers and used to devise a new Programme of Activities for which funding will be sought through direct giving, income generated by letting of facilities, from paying class participants and from public, private and corporate sources.
