The grant is a restricted fund to support the local Community Action Network (CAN) who are going to use the funding to provide:
- Local community members with training to become community researchers
- Undertake an action learning community research project in the area of Fordbridge
- Identify gaps in services and provide evidence for the CAN group to secure support to narrow the gaps identified.
The project will also help isolated community members access existing services and support local people to develop employability skills.
The funding will pay for training, specialized protective equipment for community researchers (learners), room hire and some small coordination expenses.
We will publish details and updates on the project as it develops.
