Description:
The largest single category of group funded under the scheme is men's groups. This category has increased from one third of all groups funded in 1994 to about 43% in 1996. Ninety per cent of all groups funded are locally based with only about 5% claiming a regional remit and a further 5% which are national bodies. Over half of all groups are based in urban areas with over a third based in towns. Only a small proportion are based in rural areas. Between half and two thirds of all groups funded between 1994 and 1996 had no paid workers at all. On average, the groups had between four and five paid workers, including part-time staff and staff funded under Community Employment schemes. Groups were relatively recently established with an average age of about five years. About half of all groups claimed to have no other source of public funding. ' In summary, groups funded under the scheme tend to be relatively recently established, relatively small, locally based groups, a significant (and increasing) proportion of which are stand-alone men's groups. From this perspective, the scheme of grants can be seen as achieving its objectives in providing funding to locally based men's groups.
