2020 is turning out to be a good year for Liverpool Lighthouse in spite of the challenges of Covid-19. Since January, we have secured a number of important grants.
The big news at the turn of this year was the award of £15,950 from the People’s Postcode Trust towards preparing a group of women in our community for employment or business setup. This will involve developing their confidence, basic and employability skills.
The Tilney Fund gave us £2,914 towards a project to help 50 disengaged young people aged 14-18 to make a contribution to their community, learn life and employability skills including marketing, budgeting and organisation through running a project to train them to organise events to raise money for community causes of their choice.
In March, £26,150 was awarded to Liverpool Lighthouse by Liverpool one foundation towards salaries for two part time staff to support young people with mental health difficulties. The two will join the Youth Connect team, our skills development project for young people, developing new activities that promote positive mental health and evening drop in sessions for young people.
