Rape Crisis Centre Funding Motion, 16/01/15 [S]

Motion lodged before the Scottish Parliament on 16 February 2015 by Christina McKelvie (SNP) on Lanarkshire Rape Crisis Centre Funding Success. The full text of the motion reads:

That the Parliament welcomes the news that Lanarkshire Rape Crisis Centre has been given £47,646 by the Big Lottery Fund Scotlandís Young Start Awards; understands that the two-year grant will be used to start a youth empowerment programme that will operate in both North and South Lanarkshire; notes that the project will aim to promote self-confidence and positive attitudes toward gender and sexuality by engaging up to forty 16 to 24-year-olds in workshops, community activities, conferences and media events; further notes that 13-year-olds and upward will also be able to participate through social media, and hopes that projects such as this prove successful in ensuring a positive open society for all.
