Council, at this week's meeting, welcomed news that two grants have been received, enabling projects, previously “on hold”, to be funded and to go ahead.
The grants are from the Joyce Fisher Trust and the Lottery Grants Commission.
“These funds will be used to benefit the Association, our members and, ultimately, the community”, says President Selwyn Haworth.
“We are very grateful to the two organisations and at our meeting Council members gave preliminary consideration how best to apply the funds”.
“The grant from Joyce Fisher Trust is, as per our application, tagged – it enables us to catch up with the electronic age at Service Desks, giving Justices access to the internet which is fast becoming an essential tool so they can carry out their duties”.
“The grant from Lotteries,” Selwyn says, "will be applied towards greatly needed operational expenses (including website enhancement, publicity, conferences and insurance), training needs (Hub venue hire & material and trainer development) and Service Desk/Support Group ‘needs’”.
