Sonning Common Green Gym 25 Sep 2018
We welcome those participants recovering from mental health problems who are now finding their feet back in everyday life. However, they do not get the best benefit if they cannot have regular transport to work sessions. The Community Integration Awards may open the door to ensuring their regular participation.
Banbury Singing for Well-being 20 Feb 2019
The main costs of this project will be running the sessions as follows: We will also commit time and resource to marketing and publicising the singing initiative: making contact with a range of key links in the local community such as the Horton discharge team; Radio Horton, local GP practices; Cherwell District Council; Oxfordshire County Council adult social care teams; Social prescribing staff; the Clinical Commissioning Group, local agencies and charities such as the Cornhill Centre, Housing 21, Sanctuary Housing, Age UK Oxfordshire and Carers Oxfordshire, BBC Oxford, Banbury Guardian, Banbury representatives of the new Age-Friendly Cultural Network such as Banbury Museum, the Old Mill etc. We will aim to set up intergenerational activities which bring the members of Singing for Well-being and other older people together with students from primary and secondary schools, and this will contribute to the 'Age of Creativity' festival in May, where the age-friendly cultural network in Banbury will be coming together and in which the key theme is 'intergenerational', on the basis that research about the U-shaped age curve of loneliness (Victor 2010) tells us that young people are at risk of loneliness and isolation as severely as older people

Grant to Syrian Sisters 28 Nov 2018
Syrian Sisters plans to continue and expand their work over the next year to meet the changing needs of refugee women in Oxford. In the next 12 months they are planning the following projects: Parenting: The group plans to focus on tackling many of the challenges the women face in parenting in the UK and has linked up with ‘In the Loop’ community group and Oxford Early Years to run a project exploring issues such as mental health and children’s behaviour in order to enable women to cope with the changes in their and their children’s lives. Peer Mentoring: With new Syrian families still arriving in Oxford, the group wants to establish a more formal mentoring or ‘buddy’ system so that women who have been here longer are able to share their knowledge and experience with new arrivals. Initial training for mentors will be sought from Refugee Resource. School Holiday Camps: Following a successful Easter Arts Camp in 2018 the group is planning a half-term camp in October with artists from Oxford University's Multaka project, a Christmas party and another Holiday Camp in 2019. Training workshops: Women in the group have expressed the desire for more skills training, in particular in basic IT and driving theory. They already have contacts with trainers and translators who can run these. All these projects depend on having a regular meeting space and a coordinator to organise them. Having these core costs covered will enable the group to implement all of the above.
Tandem 20 Feb 2019
From 1999 until 2017 we employed two part-time co-ordinators and supported up to 30 partnerships at any one time. However we found it increasingly difficult to raise sufficient funds each year, and so took time to restructure the organisation, working without an office and with fewer co-ordinator hours. We are now clear about how many co-ordinator hours we need to support up to 25 partnerships at any one time, and in order to ensure continuity and stability to the service we are looking to appoint a co-ordinator for 15 hours a week from the Spring of 2019. We are very confident that we have now got an efficient and cost-effective structure that maintains our high standards of safety and support for our partnerships. The co-ordinator will organise the day-to-day running of Tandem, evaluate and follow up referrals, recruit and train volunteers, support and monitor the partnerships, and report to the monthly management committee meeting. Our experience is that it is important to the service to have one person who can take time to build up relationships with both service users and volunteers, enabling the service to change shape where necessary to accommodate the varying needs.
Grant to Thame Chamber Choir 14 Dec 2018
Funding will be used to hire musicians and equipment so that in their 20th anniversary year they can expand their scope of what they present at their concerts
The Mill Arts Centre 20 Feb 2019
The significant majority (68%) of our fixed overhead costs are made up of permanent staff salaries (£244,391) for which we are seeking support. In particular a significant proportion of this time is allocated to the development and running of audience engagement projects, as well as identifying new partnerships and groups to work with in order to extend our reach into those sections of the community that might otherwise not be culturally engaged.
Parasol Youth Volunteering Programme 15 Oct 2018
We are seeking funding to support the expansion of our Parasol Youth Volunteering Programme for 40+ disabled and disadvantaged young people (10-25yrs) during 2019-20. Inclusivity and equal opportunities are key hallmarks and features of Parasol. Therefore, we also work with young carers, those in care, care leavers and refugees. The funding will enable us to (1) employ sessional staff (Youth Volunteer Enablers) to support the expanded programme and; (2) recruit a part-time Parasol Plus Coordinator to deliver our new Parasol Plus Programme for young disabled adults (19-25yrs). This new post will focus on supporting disabled young adults (Workforce Volunteers) to take part in work experience activities and training both in-house as well as out in the local community. This funding would effectively quadruple volunteering opportunities as it would extend the current programme (from 10 to 46 weeks a year) providing volunteer placements on all of Parasol activities: Choice Days, Play Schemes, After School Club, Youth Club, Dance Group and on our new pilot Workforce Volunteer Parasol Plus Programme. The programme will put scaffolding opportunities in place to help individuals build their capabilities, confidence, identity, self-worth which in turn, helps individuals develop positive relationships and support networks via volunteering.
Equipping Young People in South Abingdon 15 Oct 2018
We will run a mentoring programme for 10 young people in South Abingdon so that by the end of it they are equipped with the skills, and have developed character, so that they can confidently take social action opportunities in their community. We have already identified six young people who would benefit from this input who are aged 15-17. The programme will consist of weekly one-to-one mentoring with either a Thrive South Abingdon youth worker or a trained volunteer. They will help the young people develop the skills and attitudes required for them to become productive members of society. Mentors will encourage the young people to set achievable goals such as re-engagement with education, considering their training pathway to improve their prospects for the future, and planning towards gaining employment. These goals will be set within a context of encouraging the young people to engage with social action. Our carefully chosen volunteer mentors will also provide young people with positive role models who are themselves engaging in social action. These mentors will encourage the young people to development their character, helping them to avoid crime and anti-social behaviour that some in their community have modelled.
