Great News – More Funding Success!
We are on a roll! We were successful with our Adapt & Thrive funding application and we will now be able to make changes so we can adapt to the Covid-19 pandemic and thrive when we come out of the other side. We now feel we will be able to come back bigger and better!
We are tremendously grateful for this funding award as it will allow us to implement changes to help us to move some of our training services and fundraising activities/sales online. This ensures we adapt to current market trends and provide much needed services for our service users and customers.
Our new “blended learning” training model will mean our service users can learn both in our charity shop/training centre and digitally. Our new, digital expert will guide and support our trainees, using a person-centred, tailored approach so that they are confident to use their new I-pads, laptops and new training method, Moodle.
This funding will give us the resources to generate income through online trading, fundraising and recycling platforms and also implement new fundraising ideas within the shop. It will allow us to actively promote our work and enable us to build a bigger network through a new, professional website, digital screen and revamped social media channels.
More Funding Success!
COVID 19 Update
We are delighted to let you know that we will be re-opening on Tuesday 27th April at 10:00 am. We really look forward to welcoming you back. We will have all the Covid-19 safety measures in place. The safety of our staff, trainees, volunteers and customers are of the upmost importance to us. Thank you for your continued support, patience and see you all soon.
The All Together Team
Great news. We were delighted to hear that we have been successful in our funding application to the CRNS Pockets and Prospects Fund, supported by the Scottish Community Alliance.
This fund will enable us to test and sell recycled electrical goods in our charity shop. This will not only benefit the local community by providing quality, affordable electrical goods but will also help protect the environment as these items will be re-used instead of going to landfill.
This will also help us to offer more training opportunities to our service users who will learn skills in health and safety and recycling.
We Are Now on Social Media
All Together Edinburgh is now on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Join us on these platforms to stay fully up to date with all our plans. See you there!
Co-op Community Fund
We have done it again! We have been chosen to be part of the Co-op Local Community Fund for another year ( from November 2020 to October 2021). Thank you Co-op for this wonderful opportunity.
We plan to use the funding to buy COVID-19 training resources and materials. This will help to educate our trainees in social distancing and safe hygiene measures.
