IT Project to continue

The trusts IT project coordinator Catriona Canning has today (25th October) received funds from The Allen Lane Foundation to see the continuation of the popular IT project.  The Trust was instrumental in sourcing the original funding for the IT project when it started.  The project employs one part time member of staff and delivers twice weekly IT drop in sessions.  Over 60 adult members of the community have benefited from the assistance of the IT project.  The project also provides free WIFI at the Glendale Community Hall which has been secured until 2017.  The project has also included a schools outreach programme covering internet safety and coding and has held events such as digital treasure hunts for local and visiting children.

It can’t always be good news…

The trust had some disappointing news today. We have been unsuccessful at being accepted onto the second stage of the Coastal Communities Funding (CCF) programme. We were applying to this fund to repair and extend the slipway at Meanish Pier along with installing a pontoon.
I have spoken with a CCF funding officer and the reasons are that it was extremely oversubscribed. They had over 80 applications and of these 63 projects were deemed as fundable. Our application was deemed as fundable and he highlighted that it was also seen as a worthwhile project. Unfortunately they could only take 20 of these applications forward to stage two and 10 or less of these are likely to receive funding. Priority was given to applicants who had been knocked back for CCF previously due to oversubscription and this was our first application for the pier. Priority was also given to areas that have not received CCF before and a number of projects in Skye and Lochalsh have received CCF.
They have recommended other funding streams and I am now looking into this.
I’m dissapointed but not dispondent.
