Mobilising Voluntary Action

NCVO and the University of Kent are currently working with partners on a collaborative research study looking at volunteering during Covid-19. The research aims to strengthen the evidence base on the impact of Covid on volunteering and what support is needed within communities and organisations. Learning from the research will generate recommendations to help inform recovery and shape future policy. Complete the survey here.

Pay Scales for the VCS

A perpetual challenge for voluntary and community sector organisations is how to afford salary increases – particularly when a multi-year grant does not include inflationary uplift, and your employees’ salaries are based on national pay scales.

This question was raised again recently by Rory Gillert, CEO of Bishop Creighton House, and is particularly timely given the heightened financial difficulties that many organisations are facing.

As a very quick benchmarking exercise, Sobus would like to ask you to complete a very short survey to try and find out what pay scales local organisations use.  The survey is only 3 questions (4 if you add want to add any additional comments), so only takes a minute or so to complete!  Your answers will of course be kept completely confidential, but the collated results will be available for your information in the next month or so.

You can find the survey here:

H&F Dementia Strategy- Local Stakeholders Survey

This is a difficult time for us all and I hope you are safe and well.  I’m writing to ask for your help in improving the lives of people and their families who are living with dementia in our borough.

We need your help to become a Dementia-Friendly borough by 2022.  This means we want to work with local organisations, residents and others to make Hammersmith & Fulham a community where people with dementia are truly understood, respected and supported. Your responses will form a key part of the Dementia Strategy and Action Plan we will be creating to realise this vision.

As part of this, we’re trying to get a better picture of how local stakeholders from across the community may or may not already be helping people with dementia – and I’d be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to answer the question below by Wednesday 24th February 2021.

You’ll note that one of the questions asks if you’d like to get more involved. Perhaps you’d like some dementia training – or maybe you’ve got tips you could share with other organisations?

If you would like to be part of an ongoing conversation about improving the services for families affected by dementia, we would like to keep in touch with you.

The survey should only take a few minutes. There are no right or wrong answers and your answers will be confidential.
