We have worked directly with the local community plus partner organisations and groups to identify training and seed funding opportunities to support the development of local and social enterprise. Through doing so we have offered a course of 3 digital marketing training days, safeguarding and health and safety training courses, entrepreneurship workshops as well as funding local partners to deliver sewing and cookery courses for women from Asian communities.
We’ve also funded t-shirt design workshops the Caxton Youth Club, enabling local young people to create and sell their own designs and offered seed funding to a new community digital radio station which will offer training and guidance to all those who want to take part and get involved in running the station.
We are also pleased to have supported local mums with training costs and DBS checks to set themselves up as childminders, so they are able to work whilst also looking after their own families.
20 local volunteers for radio station.
"Radio Free Pimlico is another project taking shape solely through the generosity of Pimlico Million. The studio is based in Churchill Gardens Hall and will launch alongside a website with Listen Again facilities. Now we have a core of 20 local residents all keen to chip in with different skills to get this project off the ground. Once again a huge thank you to Jane and The Pimlico Million for the support and encouragement."Radio Free Pimlico
