One year ago we worked with Manningham Advice Project in Bradford (giving advice to a largely Asian community) on an application to the Henry Smith Charity. Having got through stage 2 there was the visit – at which point most succeed in getting a grant. We were unsuccessful – due to issues over safeguarding. We didn’t give up! Rachel has worked with the Project for months to refine a new application. We got through to the visit stage – and this time were successful in winning a grant of £198,000 over 3 years – this will really help stabilise the swrvices and support the Project provides.
