The postholder will be responsible for ensuring that the VCS is built into the Neighbourhood Model, and that VCS organisations have sufficient opportunities during co-production. The postholder will be expected to develop a good working relationship with the Workstream SRO and other participants to make sure that the role of the VCS is integral to the work that they are doing.

The Justice and Equality Fund’s ‘Now’s the Time’ small grants programme

Now’s the Time, the second programme from the Justice and Equality Fund, is open for applications and aims to amplify the voices of individuals and groups who are calling for an end to sexual harassment and abuse, in their workplaces and in their communities. 

We want to resource imaginative, collaborative and creative grassroots activism so we are asking organisations to apply by answering the question: What would you do towards ending sexual harassment (in work places and in communities)? We want to fund:
 

Prevention work

Awareness raising activities

Imaginative and creative grassroots activism

Influencing work

Work with groups and communities who might face additional barriers to getting their voices heard, or might be at higher risk of sexual harassment and abuse to amplify those voices

Work that tries out new ideas

Work that replicates tried and tested approaches in new settings

Work that others can learn from
 

We are particularly keen to see cross-sector partnerships where the expertise of specialist voluntary sector organisations at the forefront of this work is shared with others to help drive broader change. Organisations can apply for up to £25,000

All applications must be submitted by Thursday 27th September.
