I’m very pleased to have helped the Adhar project in Leicester get a grant for £10,000 which will enable them to communicate and respond to the many people turning to them for help with mental health issues. The project was desperate for new equipment: phone system and desktop computers so that staff can deliver effective online workshops and one to one sessions. And, they will have funds to hold a Healing and Togetherness event for the many people touched by Covid – great news!
Having been approached by the Aim Group to see if I was interested in working as an ‘industry specialist’ on the new Fundraising Apprenticeship I’m pleased to say that I will be working with them as both Associate Assessor and Reviewer of the materials used in the framework. It feels good to be able to support others in their learning and career progression. My own learning will also be boosted as I will need to complete a course in Assessment as part of the programme.
