Funding for community led applications to create new green spaces


On Wednesday 5 December MHCLG published the Pocket Parks Plus prospectus inviting community-led applications for funding to create new green spaces of up to 0.4 hectares and to refurbish existing parks.


The prospectus offers an opportunity to build on coverage around the Government’s work to support local parks and green areas, especially with regards to community involvement in green spaces.

It will also build on the success of the original Pocket Parks Scheme in 2015/16.


Pocket parks provide green spaces which can improve the physical and mental health of the community and can be used for physical exercise, social meetings, nature education, community events, and meeting other local needs. Each pocket park will be an individual space tailored to the needs of the local area by the community group which has applied for the grant.
Communities across England will have the opportunity to bid for a share of £1 million Pocket Parks Plus funding to support them in taking control of their own green spaces.


Applicants have until Friday 25 January 2019 to submit an application to MHCLG and further details are available in the prospectus and the related press release
Prospectus
 Funding of up to £15,000 is available for the creation of each new park. And £25,000 for the refurbishment of a park.

Risk Management for trustees
In an era of increasing concern regarding liabilities, litigation, regulatory compliance and reputational risk, charities are coming under greater scrutiny than ever. Boardroom competency in identifying, managing and mitigating risk is now a required skill and trustees must be able to scrutinise their executive and professional advisors’ management of risk, as well as being able to apply the same tools and techniques to their own decision making.

This course is a non-technical introduction to risk and risk management designed to enable trustees to understand and manage risk generally, but with a  focus on risks related to governance, employment, assets, service users and third parties. By the end of the day you will be better equipped to interact effectively with professional advisors and regulators, hold your executive to account, improve your own decision making and govern your organisation’s risk management activities. - See more at: https://www.civilsociety.co.uk/events/risk-management-for-trustees-26-02-2019.html#sthash.mXhPiBCU.dpuf
