BIG Lottery Reaching Communities Programme recognises Hastings Trust employability and community confidence work

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded just under £500k from the BIG Lottery to deliver a new project called Community Enablers which enables people to play a greater role in their communities whilst improving their skills, confidence and employment prospects.

The project will commence in November 2010 and will run for three years. We will work with local residents, community groups, social enterprises, voluntary organisations and local businesses to create active opportunities for involvement - contact myself or Heather Smith (heather@hastingstrust.co.uk) for more information.

We are currently in the process of recruiting new staff to deliver the project - please contact me for further information and an application pack - mel@hastingstrust.co.uk

The closing date for applications is 5pm on 29th October.

Please see the following press statement from the BIG Lottery - and huge congratulations to Project Artworks who have also been awarded funds thorugh this programme
