Recovery Fund Project aim was to support charities to come back to the new ‘normal’ during the coronavirus crisis. To start offering support services in a safely manner and bring back staff from furlough. All within the Government guidelines. Thanks to the funding we were able to offer our full range of services and help greater number of people in need.
Adapt and Thrive Project aim is to develop our services, especially expand psychological support to help as many people as we can during such unprecedented times. The aim of the project is also to strategically plan for the future that will help the organisation become more financially sustainable and maintain the level of funding needed to keep going. The project’s objective is flexibility during such unpredicted times and adjusting and adapting its services quickly to the emerging needs so that whenever necessary the services are always available to the public, either by internet platforms or face to face.
The funding that we received from the Robertson Trust will help the organisation in covering daily running costs and as a result, it will help in focusing our efforts on helping those who need our support the most. The Family Support Project targets Polish community and offers: Psychological support, advice, befriending, peers support and comprehensive support services for families.
The project in partnership with Edinburgh Community Food that aim was to encourage healthy eating, healthy lifestyle and change the eating habits of our communities.
