Assistive Technology Event to Support Independent Living

The Corn Exchange in King's Lynn is hosting West Norfolk Disability Forum's first Assistive Technology event on Monday, 14 September 2015.

Fit for Work

Fit for Work is a service that supports employees on sick leave, their employers and GPs. 

Minimum Wage and Living Wage

 New legislation means that employers must start paying the National Living Wage from April 2016.  

Annual Leave

The result of a recent case has made a definitive stance on time limit that an employee on sick leave must use their annual leave by when it is carried over into a new year.

Commute could soon count as working time for mobile workers

The Advocate General of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has given his opinion on what constitutes 'working time' for mobile workers under the Working Time Directive. According to him, if workers travel from home to a variety of different locations to carry out their duties, the time spent travelling to the first and from the last assignments of the day should count as working time.

Three Days Left to Book - Stronger Together Conference

Three days left to book for the Stronger Together Conference on the 7th July and there is still time to book your place. Here are a few highlights from our programme of workshops and remember the event is free to Community Action Norfolk members and members of the Voluntary Sector Forum.

Funding

Wymondham Community Bookshop

Fearing the loss of the existing bookshop, which was run as a private business but was closing down, a group of local people wanted to take it over and run it as a social enterprise. The group got in contact with Community Action Norfolk and we reviewed the group’s business plan and funding options, providing advice and additional options for support. The group also valued our advice in setting up an appropriate legal structure for their new social enterprise.
