Local community group, Donegall Pass Community Form, secured a £300 community grant from Power NI’s, Helping Hands scheme.

This initiative invites employees to nominate local organisations or charities close to their hearts for funding to give them a Helping Hand. Thanks to Power NI employee Natasha Stewart, the Donegall Pass Community Forum were able to purchase equipment to provide beauty training and education to residents of the local area.  
Donegall Pass Community Forum are a registered VTCT centre, which is a market leading vocational and technical awards organisation, which over the past 5 years has been delivering a suite of Beauty and Complementary Therapies projects. 

Projects like these are a lifeline to the local community, enabling students to not only build key communication skills but also achieve additional qualifications in Maths, English and ICT, which have supported some in ventures to set up their own enterprises.  

Natasha Stewart, Power NI employee commented: “I am incredibly grateful to Power NI for their generous donation of £300 towards training and education programmes in the Donegal Pass area. With their support, they can continue to empower women in the community with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the job market. Thank you for helping them to make a difference in the lives of those they serve. The Helping Hands scheme is an excellent initiative and I know how much it will benefit the Donegal Pass Community Forum.

Donegall Pass Community Forum representative, Sandy Webb said: “The £300 has helped Donegall Pass Community Forum to buy equipment for one of our Beauty Courses that engage local women with training in the local area.  This generous contribution will really benefit our learners who are struggling with the current cost of living crisis and will help remove their barrier to participating in meaningful qualifications.”
