0 Erasmus+ Funding programme Workshop on the 14th December 2016

The Liverpool City Region Brussels Office, in cooperation with the LCR EU trans-national funding networks, is planning a workshop on the Erasmus+ funding programme on the afternoon of 14 December. This workshop is being delivered in partnership with Ecorys, the National Contact Point for the programme. An agenda for the workshop is erasmus-workshop-agenda-141216

Erasmus+ provides funding for skills development and training at all levels of education, including vocational training. At the workshop, Ecorys will explain UK involvement in the programme as well as the programme priorities, eligibility criteria and funding submission process.

The main focus of the workshop will be on funding for mobility schemes (KA1) for vocational training students (including in-house training for staff), adults and young people, as well as educational staff, and on strategic and innovative partnership projects (more flexible projects, not just about mobility) across all levels of education (KA2). These projects are not limited thematically and can apply to any sector.

0 Charities Act 2016: new fundraising rules

New rules for charity fundraising start on 1 November 2016. They affect the trustees’ annual reports of larger charities that fundraise from the public, as well as the contents of the agreements that must be in place when professional fundraisers or other businesses (‘commercial participators’) raise money for charities.

The Charity Commission (‘the Commission’), the independent regulator of charities in England and Wales, is issuing this alert to inform fundraisers and the trustees of charities affected by the new provisions about what they have to do to comply.

0 Call for creative briefs for the Dee Estuary Landscape Partnership Scheme – Deadline 19th December 2016

Cheshire Wildlife Trust is looking for a creative partner to help people understand and celebrate the amazing wildlife, history and heritage of Dee Estuary. We are preparing a stage 1 application for a Heritage Lottery Fund landscape partnership scheme for the Tidal Dee Catchment Partnership. The scheme will develop a suite of projects focusing on the heritage of the area with a particular emphasis on:

The special habitats and wildlife associated with the estuary
The relationships between land and people, how people change the land and how land changes the people
The Dee Estuary as a changing landscape – past, future and future: geomorphological, economic, social, climate
We want to make art a key element of the scheme and are looking for creative individuals or organisations to help us engage with a wide range of audiences around the estuary through sight and sound to inspire people to take a fresh look at the estuary and gain a new appreciate of its value and special qualities. If you have ideas about how to do this we would love to hear from you.
