Nuneaton & Bedworth CAN... tackle the effects of poverty

High unemployment and benefit changes are placing new stresses on individuals and families. National policy changes focus upon reducing reliance on benefits, and many people are finding themselves in financial situations they have not experienced before.  Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector organisations are and will increasingly be part of the safety net by providing preventative services (supporting people to manage finances, eat healthily etc.) and reactive services (providing emergency provision to those most in need, food, shelter etc.).   This ‘special’ CAN event will provide a space for discussion on the current issues, trends and needs, within the VCS as well as with partner organisations from the public and private sectors. In the north of the county we see some of the highest levels of deprivation, disadvantage and need, and hence a higher utilisation of reactive services and possibly (in some circumstances) a greater needs therefore for encouraging preventative measures. The event will help us jointly solve the ‘what next’, to help you to decide what other infrastructure needs to be put in place to help us all ‘tackle the effects of poverty’ in Nuneaton and Bedworth.   We really hope you can join us for this event, run in partnership with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, Warwickshire County Council and Bedworth Rugby and Nuneaton Citizens Advice Bureau. As always you are more than welcome to bring along any displays or literature to share with others to celebrate what you are doing (related or otherwise to the event agenda).    AGENDA

Reporting serious incidents to the charity regulator

Sector News - Fri, 05/09/2014 - 08:43

Charities are being reminded of the need to report serious incidents (RSIs) to the Charity Commission, the charity regulator in England and Wales. It believes under-reporting is “preventing the Commission from assessing the true scale and nature of risks facing charities and putting some charities and their work at risk where the trustees need assistance to handle them”.
