Grassroots Training wins resilience grant

The ChangeUp consortium is managing 'Ready, Responding & Resilient Grants' for the community and voluntary sector in Brighton & Hove.  The funding is being provided by Brighton & Hove City Council to help support the community and voluntary sector to manage the impacts of the recession.

We've been awarded £1,000 to pay for support services to help us become more resilient.  We will use the money to pay for printing costs and marketing materials, including a new training brochure and new business cards.  Hurrah!  This will be the first time we've ever had a budget for such things.  Whatever next..?
