Scottish Government fund Malawi's first-ever street paper

INSP received great funding news this month. The Scottish Government has awarded a 3-year grant to help support INSP partner, ‘Cultural Awakening Society' in Malawi. The project will build upon the initial INSP street paper development training held in August. Preparations for the launch of Malawi's first-ever street paper are now underway and the local team are delighted by the funding news and are ready to go!

INSP Board Meeting

The second face-to-face board meeting of this year took place in Glasgow at the end of September. All members of the board attended the 4-day meeting, along with INSP staff. The packed schedule made for a constructive meeting with very positive outcomes, incorporating members' views and feedback.

INSP's focus is now on pushing forward with the Marketing and Fundraising plans to ensure that the network continues to grow and develop. Throughout the week, we also had the opportunity to meet with some of INSP funders and partners from Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government. We also met with INSP's lawyer Ian Meiklejohn and former INSP Honorary President Mel Young.
