Good Things Foundation: Financial Support and Employability Survey

Source By: J P Morgan Chase Foundation Research

Good Things Foundation, the national charity for digital inclusion, is doing research for JP Morgan Chase Foundation. We are interested in how people in East London (Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets) get support for work, financial capability and digital inclusion. 

 

Good Things Foundation and SCVO (in Scotland) are working together to better understand how a range of organisations are helping clients and beneficiaries to use digital technology as part of their work. 

We are particularly interested in how technology is currently used to help people who want to:
  • Make the most of their money
  • Find a job or progress in work
Each of these goals might be reached through particular kinds of help, informal support, referrals, or courses that help people to learn in a more structured way. 

We have already done a lot of work to understand the different activities that can help people to achieve each of these goals. This survey is designed to add to our knowledge and test our understanding of how this works in practice.

We appreciate the time that you take to complete this survey (it should take you no more than five minutes). 

Good Things Foundation has a formal partnership with Save the Children. This year so far we have raised almost £2k to support their work.  For each survey returned we will donate £1.

The results of this survey will be fed into a research report to be shared with key stakeholders and potential funders in Spring 2020.

Citizen-Led Engagement Programme

Source By: London.gov.uk

This year we are once again inviting community groups to apply for grant funding to facilitate their own community-led research projects, in collaboration with the Greater London Authority (GLA).

The Mayor’s Community Engagement team launched the Citizen-Led Engagement Programme in 2017/18 to begin to address inequalities. The programme commissioned six community-based projects and delivered a tailored learning programme.

The Mayor is committed to making the capital a city for all Londoners, where every community can thrive. He is committed to making London fairer and more inclusive, and to encouraging active citizenship. 

This will only be possible in collaboration with London’s communities. We know there are some communities in London that have not historically engaged with City Hall and this has led to a gap in the GLA’s insight and relationships with these communities.

The aim of the programme is to: 

  • strengthen connections and engagement with communities whose voice and influence on public policy is under-represented
  • improve insights into communities who do not currently have a voice in City Hall
  • identify and develop community leaders within community groups and support capacity building within these groups
  • generate valuable insight to inform policy and practice in City Hall
  • build on the learnings from the pilot round of the Citizen-Led Programme, as a way of engaging communities and groups in the work of the GLA
