We exist to help low income Lambeth people gain the skills and experience needed to allow them to seek and obtain decently paid work. Most of our grants go to organizations, including schools, but we also make awards directly to individual applicants meeting our criteria. Our latest analysis shows that in the last year most of our individual grants have gone to women (see image). We know that many women face additional social obstacles to gaining skills and work. We seek to address this in part by making grants for childcare costs. But even allowing for this we shall be seeking to achieve a better balance in our awards to men and women during 2014/15. If you have comments, or suggestions on targeting more young Lambeth men, please post them.
