Our £1,000 awards are open to eligible charities registered in the UK and Republic of Ireland - these could range from smaller volunteer-run groups to larger, well-known organisations. Our £50,000 awards are open to eligible charities registered in the UK and Republic of Ireland with an income of less than £5m, which support a cause that we know our communities care about. Please read our full terms and conditions, to see whether your charity is eligible to apply.

Source By: The Advocacy Project

The Advocacy Project  is working with NHS England and Healthy London Partnership to recruit people with lived experience of mental health difficulties (individuals and carers) to feed into a London-wide mental health project called the Adult Mental Health Transformation Programme. This is a voluntary position. 

 

We are looking for people who are passionate about improving London’s mental health services to be involved in our project. There are various ways that people can take part:

-              Sharing your views

-              Attending events

-              Representing the voice of people with lived experience at meetings

-              Co-production projects

 

We train people to get involved with the project and offer ongoing support and supervision to make sure that representatives are genuinely involved in shaping services and plans.  We see this as a really exciting opportunity and a chance for people to have a voice and shape services at a strategic level. To get involved, please contact Sarah Joy Dawoud on 020 8969 3000 or at sarah.joy@advocacyproject.org.uk, for more information and to download an application form go to https://www.advocacyproject.org.uk/news/shaping-london-wide-mental-health-services/.

The Small Charities Coalition:

There are 168,000 registered charities in the UK, and countless micro charities that don’t qualify to register. The SCC exists to make life easier for these small charities. Founded in 2008, the SCC currently has over 9,000 UK-wide members and supporters. It has made it its mission to provide the charities with relevant support and make their voices heard. The SCC provides its members with five key services:

  • Training: affordable and accessible training across a wide range of topics
  • Mentoring: the SCC matches its members with skilled professionals from the charity or private sector
  • Support line: members receive free support, advice and referrals online and over the phone
  • Resources: the SCC website is packed with useful tools, templates, reference sheets and links to further advice
  • Voice: Members are represented on the wider public stage

A Beginner’s Guide to Content Marketing for Small Charities:

This introductory session will provide a brief overview of what content marketing is, how it can help charities grow and teach you how to develop a successful content marketing strategy for your organisation. Attendees will leave with tools and techniques to make the most of their content, and learn how to produce content quickly across multiple platforms.

Tickets are open to members of the SCC only, and places are charged at £30 each. Membership is entirely free, and gives organisations access to all the services mentioned above, whilst also providing access to a national support network of other small charities.

Partnership working between the voluntary sector, local government and the NHS is crucial to improving care for people and communities. But how can health and care systems make sure they involve local charities and social enterprises in the most effective way?

 

This new NHS England podcast explores the answer, featuring a trio of perspectives and a range of examples of how joined-up working is making a difference to patients, communities and staff. With voluntary sector organisations often having an impact well beyond what statutory services alone can achieve, this podcast provides useful insights into how to maximise local assets to transform care.
