Towards the cost of an International Women's Day Event and running costs of the group.
Amount awarded: £2900
Location: City of Edinburgh
The IWD celebration will bring together all local women's groups and agencies providing women's services. Often new women are attached to this event and subsequently join groups and classes. The group should develop further this year and by visiting other local and similar projects they hope to expand and develop an idea for a community project. At the moment the group is interested in the feasibility of starting a community café/advice information centre. The group will also develop informal learning opportunities and input into the local learning network regarding what women want.
