Love Norwich project to help vulnerable women gets major funding boost from Santander Foundation
A Norwich charity that works with vulnerable young women has received a �10,000 donation to fund a part-time project manager for its self-esteem course.
Love Norwich, a community initiative set up by Norwich-based church Proclaimers, has been running a course locally called 'Shine' for over 12 months - which has now received a major boost from the Santander Foundation.
The program is aimed at improving self-esteem in teenage girls and women by encouraging them to participate in a range of activities that seek to change the way they think about themselves.
Gemma Neill, project manager at Love Norwich said: 'The message the course delivers is about worth, strength and purpose and aims to build self-esteem and enable young women to live full and independent lives.
'This funding will help us to significantly expand our capacity to run more courses and reach more high schools within the city to deliver this important message.'
Anoushka Brown, communications manager at the Santander Foundation, added: 'The Santander Foundation makes hundreds of donations every year to good causes around the UK to support disadvantaged people through education and training projects.
'We are delighted to have been able to support this project and hope that it has a positive impact on many people's lives.'
