Volunteers, called Journey Makers, will be offering guidance, providing friendly advice, reminding passengers about social distancing measures, preventing overcrowding and helping vulnerable passengers on their journeys.
Locality have a great selection of resources for your community organisation such as:
GBCT makes grants to UK registered charities for the provision of Emergency Aid in communities; the encouragement of volunteering among young people; and the enhancement of skills among young people. The Trustees of the GBCT acknowledge the unique challenges faced by the world at this current time and remain 'open for business', welcoming new grant applications.
The Community Justice Fund has been formed by a partnership of key representative umbrella bodies to help specialist social welfare legal advice organisations to cope with the immediate impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and lay the foundations for longer term renewal. The first wave, which is now open and will run for six months, will provide flexible grants to organisations that meet the eligibility criteria and priorities. Grants are likely to be between £25,000 and £75,000, but could be larger in certain circumstances. The Fund aims to assess applications on a weekly basis and decisions received within ten days of an application being submitted.
Sport England has committed another £1 million to combating the impact of coronavirus by match funding money raised by sports clubs and community activity groups through the fundraising platform Crowdfunder.
Through the 'Active Together' partnership with Crowdfunder Sport England are matching crowd funds of up to £10,000 raised by clubs and organisations hit by the coronavirus crisis.
Clubs and organisations can sign up via the Crowdfunder website. They'll then need to set their crowdfunding target and put in place incentives and rewards. Once 25% of the crowdfunding is met, Sport England will confirm the match funding – up to £10,000 – and can distribute the money within seven days of being raised.
17th June - 10:00am
As we cannot get together to run a funding workshop in person just yet Sue Heyes, fund officer for the Severn Trent Community Fund, is offering a virtual workshop which will take you through the Community Fund, what it will support and how to apply.
The workshop will be from 10am on Wednesday 17th June and you will need a laptop or tablet and access to wifi. To book a place and receive the details of how to log into the session please email Sue at email@example.com.
Each session will be limited to 25 people so depending on demand Sue may need to add another date.
Once you have booked your place you will be sent all the details you need to access the session.
Read the guidance. That’s it! This interesting report from the Directory of Social Change shows the extent of how many ineligible applications were made to grant making trusts in the last year.
We are happy for you to send this information to other groups, but please acknowledge the source.
