We are offering grants of £5,000 to £10,000 for volunteering projects that help people who are experiencing loneliness and social isolation. These Londoners are sometimes referred through social prescribing to small charities and voluntary organisations. The grants will help to develop the grantees’ ability to engage sustainably with social prescribing.

Since 2013, Team London has funded small organisations who support Londoners but may not meet the criteria for larger-scale funding. You can make an application and learn more about the Small Grants Programme here. We also have an application guidance document available here. The deadline is 13 September 2019.


Clinks consultation event: the experience of black, Asian and minority ethnic children and young people in the justice system

Source By: Clinks

2nd September, London | free

What are the experiences of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people in the youth justice system and secure estate, and what progress has been made in implementing the recommendations of the Lammy Review? 

The Justice Committee has recently launched a major inquiry into children and young people in custody. Clinks, in partnership with EQUAL and the Barrow Cadbury Trust are responding to this inquiry, specifically on the overrepresentation and experience of BAME children and young people in custody.

Clinks wants to make sure that BAME-led organisations and those working with BAME children are able to inform our response. We are holding a consultation event to enable these organisations to have their voices heard by policy makers. 

The consultation will also discuss what progress the government has made in reforming the youth justice system and implementing the recommendations of the Taylor review, and whether the secure estate is a fit and proper place to hold children and young people.

Call for Volunteers -Hate Crime Awareness Week and other events

Source By: HEAR

HEAR is pleased to say that we have been invited to take part in the Corporate Social Responsibility Charity Scheme run by Lush, the cosmetics and toiletries company, who particularly support small organisations working in the field of human rights.

The profits from specific products sold on the HEAR days will be donated by the company to further HEAR's work. Plus we will be able to be present in one of their most prestigious locations in the West End to tell people about what we and our members do to further equality and rights in London. This is an unusual chance to connect with members of the public.

At the recent Pan Equality Hate Crime Network jointly organised by HEAR and Inclusion London, members of that network were keen to take up this opportunity during National Hate Crime Awareness Week, seeing it as an opportunity to contribute to awareness during this important week.

We plan to be in the store in South Moulton Street, W1, just round the corner from Bond Street station, during part of Friday 18th and Saturday 19th October. If you would like to volunteer to spend a short time with us in the store please get in touch by emailing:

hear@hearequality.org.uk

We are also holding a full day conference on Intersectionality and Immigration at the Lift, Angel Islington, on 13th September. If you would be interested in helping us on the day or preparing materials at our offices near Kings Cross, or in helping at future events, we would also be very grateful to hear from you.
