In 2018, DWICA was successful in getting a grant for four years from the Big Lottery Reaching Communities fund for a project entitled “Stronger Together“. The funding has allowed us to fund the salaries of a full-time project manager (37.5 hours per week), two project officers (30 hours per week) and a part-time administrator (22.5 hours per week).
In the intervening years so far, we are pleased to say that we have delivered, through our project officers, activities for both young and old. Youth activities have equipped the young attendees with improved transferable skills and confidence. For the Elders, our events promote regular exercise as well as increasing their social networks and friendships.
