Cumbria CVS at Work – Case Study – Be Me, Ulverston

Lisa (Community Manager) for Emmanuel Christian Centre contacted Cumbria CVS with an idea: they were looking for funding to run a 9 week kinaesthetic programme (Be Me Project) – a programme that works alongside the schools’ National Curriculum – supporting girls’ emotional health and wellbeing in an ever increasingly challenging environment. The girls would be identified by their schools as in need of additional support which this programme would provide. The idea was based on a programme that has had great success elsewhere in the UK.

What happened next

Following on from a meeting, it was evident that this project would fit within the remit of the Eric Wright Charitable Trust Small Grants Fund (hosted by Cumbria CVS).
It was also felt that running this as a pilot project would give a firm base of evidence to look for full funding in 2019. Due diligence was undertaken to ensure that although being hosted by Emmanuel Christian Centre this programme was a secular programme so fitted with the ethos of the funder.

The Community Manager Lisa, supported by Cumbria CVS applied for £265 to run the Be Me Project in Ulverston for the last term of 2018. This nine week course aims to promote wellbeing and equip young girls to break free from the ever increasing sense that they are not good enough.

The pilot project worked with 12 girls to evidence the difference this nine week programme made in their lives with a view to looking for additional funding in 2019 to run a full programme based on the findings and feedback from this pilot.

“Yet again Cumbria CVS have supported us to find the necessary funding to put our ideas in to reality. I know that with additional support from Andrew this will be an on-going programme for young girls in the area for 2019 onwards”
