Thematic Summary - Lochaber Hope

Please note that The Robertson Trust has published its new Giving Strategy. This sets out the priorities we will have when awarding funds through our open grants programme. The existing application form and guidelines can still be used until July 31st. In line with our existing procedures, we will aim to assess and present all applications received by this date to our September Board meeting. In the event that we are unable to do so, your application may be held until our November meeting. In such cases a member of staff will contact you and provide any assistance required to realign your application with the new Giving Strategy. Find out all you need to know here.

Published in October 2019, this thematic summary reports on the development of the women’s space within the pre-existing community-led organisation, ‘Lochaber Hope’, in Fort William. It provides an overview of the context to and operation of Lochaber Hope, and elaborates their ethos, vision and approach to delivery. Thereafter it explores the dynamics and effects of participation in Lochaber Hope, before outlining the origins, development and evolution of the women’s space therein.

Each thematic summary in our Women's Centre programme has been produced by the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice (CYCJ), the programme evaluators. Find out more about the Women's Centre programme here
