Investment theme: Building skills and confidence
Towards the cost of a weekly interest group for local women with facilitator, tutors and childcare.
Amount awarded: £3900
Location: City of Edinburgh
Towards the cost of a weekly interest group for local women with facilitator, tutors and childcare to give local women the opportunity to try and benefit from new activities and experiences ranging from jewellery making and alternative therapies to get involved in their campaign, joining the centre's committee and ultimately being able to progress with the group independently once the funding period is over. Local women have informed the group that they would like to get more involved in the centre and to participate in activities to be less isolated. Without funding to be able to provide on site childcare they have been unable to take up any conditions and they have been unable to provide tutors or facilitators to meet their needs.
