I Am Me Scotland have been lucky enough to be chosen as one of the causes for the Co-op Local Community Fund!
How it works:
For the next 6 months, every time a Co-op member buys Co-op branded products and services, 1% of their spend goes to a local cause, like us!
How your help will benefit the community:
We would like to use the funding to deliver awareness talks and promote social inclusion, on the I Am Me Cinebus.
The Cinebus is a mobile education unit which provides an exciting, innovative and engaging environment to educate people about the effects of disability harassment and abuse (hate crime). The awareness sessions are designed to encourage acceptance and help tackle social isolation. The bus will be used to visit young people, disabled people and organisations and help to raise awareness of these issues. The bus will also be used to promote the Keep Safe initiative. Communities, young people and disabled people will be the key beneficiaries and the training will be delivered our team, including disabled people, young people and volunteers.
