We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded £80,000 from the Scottish Government’s People in Communities Fund for the year 2015/16. ANCHO is one of only 197 organisations across Scotland who has been allocated funding to help change disadvantaged communities by providing local projects to tackle poverty and promote social inclusion.
£40,000 was allocated to take forward a ‘Small Steps Project’ working with elderly and vulnerable people in the community. The grant will pay for a Community Engagement Worker to deliver a Good Neighbour Service aimed at identifying isolated tenants and matching them with suitable volunteers, as well as continued funding for an Employability Officer to assist clients into further education, training and employment.
A further £40,000 was allocated towards taking forward a new Youth Arts Project. The Project will cover Film Production and Performing Arts and will include weekly workshops culminating in theatre productions and roadshows which will be taken out into the community. This is a 2 year project and is also part funded by Young Start.
This is where we will let you know about anything new thats happening at ANCHO.
