What are the resources Southwark Giving will be using to help people most in need going through the specified life transitions?
Southwark Giving will be distributing – money, skills and time. We will be providing money through a financial Fund, and skills and time through employee supported volunteering and through a network of donors and fundraisers.
How is Southwark Giving targeting its resources to the three specific areas of life transition priority needs?
We are in development and will be using our resources of money, skills and time to help enhance and reinforce the vital frontline work of charities and community groups in the borough already working in these need areas to help further their social impact. We will also be providing resources to help such charities and community groups pioneer new and innovative ways of working with these cohorts of community need locally.
How will Southwark Giving’s Fund help people in need on the specified areas of life transitions?
We, together with our Strategic Partnership Board, are designing the Fund currently. Once this is designed, we will be sharing all relevant information so watch this space!
We are a community organisation and work in one or more of the specified areas within life transitions. I am interested in applying for funding. What do we need to do?
Our Fund is not yet live. We will announce once the Fund is open for grant applications, the criteria and relevant process required.
However, we are able to find skilled volunteers from business to support your organisation. If you would like to know more about the work of Southwark Giving and how employee supported volunteering might be able to support your group please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
