Investment theme: Moving on from abuse
to contribute towards producing, printing and distributing contact cards and leaflets.
Amount awarded: £2000
The grant will contribute towards the cost of designing, printing and distributing contact cards and information posters and leaflets which will help publicise the support services available from Women's Aid to women, children and young people, experiencing abuse across the island and allowing them to target the otherwise hard to reach vulnerable women and children. The resources will also be distributed to professional services including schools, doctor surgeries and police stations. They have also established a social media presence using Facebook and Twitter following advice from professional stakeholders. However, internet access is not routinely the norm across Orkney’s smaller isles which is why the printed materials are just as, if not more, important. It is expected that 376 people will directly benefit.
