In 2021 funding of £100K through Public Health Derbyshire County Council was allocated to each district in Derbyshire to support positive emotional well-being for children and young people through a community asset-based approach.  Public Health is working with community partners, including Derbyshire Dales CVS to do this work.
As part of this programme in the Derbyshire Dales, a small grants scheme is being launched. Voluntary and Community Sector organisations, and Parish Councils can apply for up to £2,000 to fund existing work or for a new project that will support emotional wellbeing for children and young people. The funding can support both capital and revenue costs.
For an application form and a set of guidelines please e-mail neil@ddcvs.org.uk or call Neil Moulden on 07483 161659. Neil will be happy to answer any questions you have about the funding, and discuss any project ideas that you have. The deadline for applications is 5.00 pm on 30th June 2022.
Co-ordinator Vacancy with Connex’ Digital Inclusion Project
Connex Community Support is a local charity that helps people in need to live safer and more fulfilled lives.
In the Dales, Connex Community Support has a long history of helping people who may be geographically and/or socially isolated. Their ‘Tea, Talk & Tech’ digital inclusion project, is one of the newest additions to their range of services supporting people in the local community. The ethos is very much providing people with help in an informal way, demystifying technology in terms that are appropriate to the individual.
From small steps at the height of the pandemic, when the Connex team remotely supported a handful of service users to connect over Zoom, the organisation is delighted to see this service growing rapidly to meet both digital and social inclusion needs. As this service is growing rapidly, there is a vacancy for a project coordinator: this is an exciting role, requiring someone with drive, passion and excellent interpersonal skills.
The new coordinator will need to continue to reach out to service users who require one-to-one support at home, whilst supporting and expanding our digital community cafés through partnership working and growing our amazing team of Digital Champion volunteers.
Current community hubs are only made possible by working collaboratively with Ashbourne Sports & Community Partnership, the 50+ Forums, Platform Housing and others: you will need to continue to work with our partners to ensure the success of this project.

The Lottery is starting a conversation about how they should best support UK communities, this video explains why. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UFinrBsu ...
Communities across the UK are facing fresh challenges and opportunities and have new hopes and aspirations. And the National Lottery Community Fund would like you to help them better understand what these are and how they might support them.

By sharing your thoughts and ideas you can help ensure we, and the support we provide, remain fit and future-focused.”
With this in mind, there is a survey to complete and share your thoughts https://www.puttingcommunitiesfirst.org. ...

A group of Derbyshire Link Workers co-produced this Link Worker Manifesto as part of an artist led support programme, designed by Arts Derbyshire, during the pandemic lock downs.
It is an expression of why this group of Link Workers believe their role exists; what they think the potential of their practice is and what they need in order to achieve that potential. As Social Prescribing fundamentally relies on cross-sector, collaborative working, in which the medical model sits alongside the social, the Manifesto is ultimately intended as a provocation to ask whether there is real collective vision for this work is and to question whether we are all on the same page, locally, regionally and nationally.
During this national launch of the Manifesto, you will hear from some of the Link Workers involved, alongside Deborah Munt from Arts Derbyshire, and from Public Health in Derbyshire County Council, who commissioned the work.
A panel of invited guests, representing health and culture, will then give their responses to the Manifesto. Confirmed so far are Dr Marie Polley (Co-Founder and Co-Chair of the Social Prescribing Network), Nanjin Islam (Development Lead – Support for Social Prescribing, National Academy for Social Prescribing and Richard Ings (London area lead on arts in health, wellbeing and criminal justice, Arts Council England).
You can book your place at the launch here:

Deadline: 6th June 2022
Grants are available to charities in Great Britain for projects that empower householders to reduce their carbon emissions and engage positively with the transition to net zero.  The minimum grant that can be requested is £50,000 for projects up to two years. Applications are accepted from registered charities, Community Interest Companies, Community Benefit Societies and Cooperative Societies. The following types of projects are unlikely to be funded:
  •  Projects for carbon saving measures in bespoke individual buildings or unique building typologies that are not widely replicable and so will have a limited impact on UK carbon emissions.
  •  Projects where the application does not demonstrate sufficient relevant expertise within the project team. This is especially important for projects that aim to provide advice on carbon emissions reduction.
  •  Projects that focus on awareness raising but do not demonstrate a clear pathway to delivering meaningful and lasting carbon emissions reductions (eg through installation of measures). Advice should lead to verifiable actions.
