Jacari 18 Apr 2016
£1080 pays for five months' rent of our volunteer hub. Our tenancy at the Oxford Hub is vital to the operation of Jacari, as it allows us to book rooms for our fundraising meetings and weekly volunteer training sessions, gives us a library where we store teaching resources for volunteers to use in their lessons, acts as a focal point for support where volunteers can drop in to ask the Coordinator questions and come for their DBS check, and enables us to easily collaborate with the other organisations sharing the space.
Complex Families Volunteer Support Project 01 Dec 2016
This grant will contribute to the salaries of the Family Co-ordinator, who supports and supervises the volunteers for this complex work. They assess referrals and match volunteers, provide supervision and reviews with families. The Administrator helps process referrals and monitoring. The grant will fund volunteer expenses for weekly visits lasting 2-4 hours. We will draw on a pool of around 9 experienced volunteers, and support 6-7 families at any one time; 10 over the course of the year. The grant would also pay for 2 day mental health awareness training for 16 volunteers, delivered by Restore.

NEW VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT 18 Apr 2016
We will recruit, train, resource and support 3 new volunteers who will support 9 children for one year. Each child will benefit from 2 individual half hour sessions with their volunteer each week. Sessions will involve sharing books and games which the charity provides. The emphasis is on reading for pleasure; volunteers get to know their children, discover their interests and we can then source books to engage these reluctant readers. We would hope that these volunteers continue into second and subsequent years with the charity which would mean even more children could be benefit from this support.

New volunteer recruitment 15 Sep 2016
Average cost to the charity of recruitment, training, resourcing and support for the first year of a volunteer is £768. We ask schools to contribute £420 towards this leaving a shortfall of £348. We would use this grant to cover this shortfall which would enable us to recruit 14 new reading helper volunteers.
Community Advocacy 01 Dec 2016
In 2016/17 we budgeted for our community advocacy service. The majority of these costs (60.4%) relate to salary costs for our Programme Coordinator and support staff. Our Programme Coordinator is responsible for identifying and training volunteer advocates, receiving referrals from clients or referring 3rd parties, matching clients with volunteer advocates, supervising volunteer advocates and ensuring their on-going training needs are met, as well as service promotion. Our other costs relate to running our office including rent (17.6%), staff/volunteer expenses (10.7%), training (7.5%), service promotion (2%) and governance/professional fees including accountancy services (1.7%).
Bicester Good Neighbour Scheme (ongoing) 17 Mar 2016
The grant will help fund our scheme coordinator. Clients and volunteers need a reliable, experienced, and empathetic person to bring them together. As well as finding a suitable volunteer for each client, our coordinator risk assesses the client's environment; recruits volunteers; ensures that all are DBS checked; makes the introductions and supports all clients and volunteers. Experience has taught us that without a competent, dedicated coordinator the scheme will not flourish. We expect to lose our free office-space when Bicester Health & Wellbeing Centre closes this year and have included costs to cover an alternative.
VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT - OXFORD CITY 01 Dec 2016
We would recruit, train, resource and support for one year 14 new volunteers who would work with at least 42 children in Oxford schools in their first year, imparting a love of reading to enhance their lives at school and beyond, breaking the deprivation cycle. (Even more children will be reached if volunteers continue into second and subsequent years with ARCh)
