The challenges presented by Covid-19 have seen all companies look to new ways of working. And Futures for Women is no different. Although our Secretary has always been home-based, we have now started holding our Trustee meetings via Zoom. And on 12 September 2020 we held our first virtual AGM hosted with kind permission by our Vice-Chair, Joanna Murray. Polly Harrar of the Sharan Project, our employability programme partner, was able to attend via Zoom to update us on their work during lockdown and let us know how the charity has adapted their delivery to support women suffering from domestic abuse. And after the formal proceedings of the AGM had completed we gave thanks to the work of retiring Trustee, Amy McVittie, before discussing our strategy moving forward in 2021.
