Unltd organisation has granted £5,000 to social entrepreneur Sindy Santos for the Project Mums into Business. A group designed for mothers with an interest in setting up their own business.
She is taking over from Kirsty Frankland who ran the group as part of the Tasting Change project under the name Friday Mums.
Sindy hopes to help tackle unemployment in the area, support people out of the benefits lifestyle, encouraging them to try, turning a hobby into business or having their dream career. Teaching new generations, the people of the future, by example that being successful businesses individuals is possible. And all with the advice of professionals from Business Gateway, different workshops.
She encourages main carers to join this supportive group of mums who share similar experiences in a relaxed atmosphere at WHALE Arts Centre Edinburgh where a creche is provided while the other kids are at school.
Sindy welcomes people to participate in their Mums into Business Markets around the area where they can sell or promote their own products or services.

Whether they are providing jobs, improving the lives of people in later life, or making a positive impact in the places where they live and work, these social entrepreneurs put social purpose at the heart of what they do, ahead of financial gain.
We think social entrepreneurs make a difference and need our support. We find, fund, and support them to bring their ideas to life and build sustainable social ventures.
The Millennium Awards Trust was endowed by the Millennium Commission with a National Lottery grant of £100 million as a permanent source of grants for individuals throughout the United Kingdom to develop their own skills and talents and to contribute to the community.
