'Love Every Drop' - reducing water usage to protect out futures

Anglian Water is asking us all to use less water – and for very good reasons. All of us, as consumers, can play our part.

Thinking about providing an electric vehicle charging point?

We know many organisations are thinking about hosting an electric vehicle charging point - not only for their staff, volunteers, and service users, but also for the wider community.  We are all for initiatives that make our communities greener - and particularly in rural areas of Norfolk, that help to sustain our rural communities. That being said, charity Trustees need to think long and hard about how they go about this.

Charities and political campaigning – what you need to know in advance of the local elections

With county and district council elections happening on 6th May 2021, now is a good time to take a close look at what VCSE sector organisations need to know about getting involved in political campaigning. 

Support for carers to attend COVID-19 vaccinations

Carers, and those dependent upon them, face many additional difficulties and obstacles during the pandemic. Specialist support organisations across Norfolk have responded to the need as follows. Please help spread the word as appropriate. 

Safeguarding – what we all need to know and do

Everyone in the VCSE community should[JC1] [SN2]  be aware of the need for vigilance and protecting the vulnerable – and understand the requirements and implications of safeguarding.  Every VCSE organisation delivering charitable activities has a duty to safeguard volunteers, staff, hirers, adults, children and young people, participants and donors.

 

Use ‘features and benefits’ to communicate your impact

Knowing the difference you make is absolutely critical for voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations of all types.  ‘Feature - benefit’ statements can be a helpful way to communicate it.

For charities, using your resources in the best way possible to help your beneficiaries is a core governance requirement. Understanding how you are benefiting them, and the scale of that benefit is a key component of doing this.
