A PROJECT helping women battling substance misuse and offending has received a major boost after being handed nearly £100,000 by Comic Relief.

The grant means almost 100 women – 32 for each of the next three years – will be able to take part in the Next Steps programme run by Edinburgh-based Venture Trust.

The three-phase initiative works with a number of criminal justice teams and voluntary groups to select and prepare women for the course, which includes outdoor challenges at its residential centre in Applecross, Wester Ross.
