Investment theme: Moving on from abuse
To contribute to costs of increasing Administrator's hours.
Amount awarded: £2000
The application will support the maintenance of the organisation’s recently developed website. It will fund an additional 5 hours of admin support for 36 weeks at a cost of £55/week (£2000) to ensure that activity on the website is monitored. The website has a facility allowing women to seek an email response to requests for information or advice. The additional staff time will ensure that the organisation is able to respond to these requests in a timely manner. Speedy response is essential to promote women’s confidence in the organisation. Women need to feel they are listened to whatever the means of communication. The website has been live since early January 2014. It has received 60 hits to date. A well maintained website will also increase the organisation’s capacity to reach a greater number of women.
