This month we wave a sad farewell to our Lead Project Officer, Olwen Staples. She has worked part-time for Moniaive Initiative since 2013, establishing our Scottish Incorporated Charity status, and setting up all the administrative and financial mechanisms required to operate a successful community charity. Her research into High Street Regeneration and community-owned affordable housing options has shaped our current direction, and laid the foundations for many of the projects we are currently progressing. The Trustees, staff and members of Moniaive Initiative would like to thank Olwen for all her hard work, and wish her all the very best for the future. In the meantime, it will be business as usual at Moniaive Initiative, as Deborah Iden continues to progress our full portfolio of projects.
