"How to put differently project aims to build funding applications. Where to go for support tools to evaluate the project outcomes."

"OveralI I feel extremely happy about being involved in the project because it gave me the courage to fight for my rights as a Black person and to know that it isn’t just me challenging stereotypes but others that care about these issues as much as I do. It was really good to be involved with the project because it shows me that I have the power to change things which I think are not right, and fight…"

Throughout the discussion-based workshop I began to gain a connection and passion for my hair that I’d never had before because I was able to learn about Black culture from before slavery and how things were before we were forced into a westernised image and stripped of our identity. I now live with a proud outlook on the heritage of my roots and have made a decision to continue growing my hair, styling my hair and telling people about the roots of my hair and where the first styles all began many years ago.

I will use it in my daily project work I have to create a Theory of Change one of new projects next week so I will definitely put my learning into practice
