State of the Sector Survey from VAS

7 Aug

What’s the state of the voluntary and community sector in Sheffield? We’re trying to find out, and need your views and experiences. By taking time to complete the questionnaire you can help make the case for our collective impact and the importance of the sector to the city. Please do take the time to complete the questionnaire –  https://goo.gl/forms/n2Lv8YcfMKT6aWij1.  We’ll produce a report and one page poster/infographic which can be used widely with funders and others to make the case for what we bring.

If you also have volunteers could you encourage them to complete the volunteer questionnaire – we would like to hear from all people whether they volunteer or not and would really appreciate it if you could fill in our short Sheffield Volunteer Survey  https://goo.gl/forms/S87WTOAHmcaa50pr1

Building Connections Fund

3 Aug

New fund to tackle loneliness opens to applications on the Big Lottery Fund webpage.

Charities and community groups in England can now apply for a share of close to £9 million aimed at tackling loneliness by building strong social connections and welcoming communities.

The money is from the £11.5 million Building Connections Fund announced on 19 June by the Prime Minister, Theresa May, and lead Minister for Tackling Loneliness, Tracey Crouch, in response to the Jo Cox Commission’s recommendations on Loneliness.  Almost £9 million will be distributed by the Big Lottery Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK, and will support projects already working to prevent or reduce loneliness to increase their impact.  Grants of between £30,000 and £100,000 will be available for projects which reach out to people of all ages who feel lonely or isolated, and encourage them to take part in activities, helping them to feel more connected. This could include making the most of community spaces, improving access to transport, using digital technology, or joining up local services to have a bigger reach. The money will also support the collecting and sharing of evidence and learning to increase understanding about what works to tackle loneliness.

Applications open Monday 16 July and will close on Friday 24 August. Guidance and criteria are available on the Big Lottery Fund website.

Youth Strand  There will be a separate Youth Strand of funding is made up of £2 million, which will be distributed by the Co-op Foundation, making grants of up to £80,000. It will open for applications in August 2018 – find out more on the Co-op Foundation blog. The Youth Strand will be open to organisations with existing youth-focused activities that could be effective at helping young people avoid long-term loneliness. Successful applicants will receive funding to explore youth loneliness in greater depth, test youth-led innovations within their existing provision, and share their learning as part of a national network.

All grants will be announced in December 2018, with funding available to support projects until March 2021.
