Question 8. What would success for your project look like?

In order for us to be able to continue to train our beneficiaries over the years to come, our aim is to be running on a self-financing sustainable basis by January 2020. By that point, we will expect to develop at least 50 beneficiaries a year, who will be able to utilise the skills they have gained through our training to give them a route to a new career.

As an ancillary product from this work, we want to be broadcasting to the communities within our broadcast footprint on Freeview, Virgin Media, BT TV, TalkTalk TV and online to ensure the viability of our business model. We will also want our local news website to be seen as a valuable asset for other local charities, as well as businesses, clubs and societies in publicising their activities and initiatives.
