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.

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.

(Even more children will be reached if volunteers continue into second and subsequent years with ARCh)
