0 Job Vacancy – Gateway Award Support Worker – Deadline for applications Monday 20th March at 5pm

The Gateway Award is an accessible Awards programme, specifically designed for people with a learning disability. The programme enables people to set and reach goals in various areas of their lives including independence, health and leisure as well as volunteering.
The Gateway Award is similar in structure to the Duke of Edinburgh Award with bronze, silver and gold levels. Participants achieve their awards by participating in a wide range of activities throughout the year. We deliver the award programme to groups of people from our centre but most activities take place in the community.

The programme currently runs on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, of which we are seeking one or two staff for all three days. As of July 2017, the days will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday so flexibility across working days would be preferable.

0 Growth Fund - Pilot grant applications open – deadline 10th April 2017

Applications for grants in the pilot phase of the £1.8 million Growth fund are now open!

The aim of the Growth strand is to help social organisations scale their impact and diversify their income through accessing social investment and/or commissioned income. The pilot phase will award up to 10 grants by May 2017, with the full grant application window open from September 2017. Around 50 grants are expected to be awarded in total, with an average grant size of £50,000.

Grants are available to support charities and social enterprises to develop and embed an impact management plan, working with an approved provider. As well as provider time, the grant can pay for additional staff or necessary software or hardware—and projects can run for up to 12 months to ensure the plan is embedded.

Before applying for a grant, eligible organisations are required to attend a training session delivered by our partners Impetus-PEF. The approved providers have attended this training too to create a shared understanding about the purpose of the grants and the ambitions of the programme.

0 Government produces guidance to help public sector commissioners embed volunteering and social action in public services.

From November 2015 to August 2016 government collaborated with the New Economics Foundation to develop resources for commissioners and other public sector leaders to help them embed social action in commissioning.
