Support for community groups – South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau/Voluntary Action Sheffield

South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau/Voluntary Action Sheffield are offering free workshops to communities or communities of interest, to give advice for people involved in community groups. They will talk about finding funding, running your group, and using volunteers, and are particularly keen to talk to people who may not know what support is currently available. If you are interested, please contact SYFAB on enquiries@syfab.org.uk or 0114 2615141.

Help for community groups to find funding and write bids

8 Feb

South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau helps groups find funding for their activities. We’re offering  particular help to Sheffield groups that are volunteer run, or working with disadvantaged people. For small community groups, it’s not too hard to find funding for activities; this is what we can do to help you through the process:

  • Meet with you explain how to go about looking for funding. We can discuss what funding you need, and identify the best funders to approach
  • Help you put bids together. We won’t write them (it’s better for you to learn how to do that), but will give you comments and feedback on draft bids, to help you improve them.

Also, any group can also register for free on our website www.syfab.org.uk. You’ll receive a weekly ebulletin on new funds, upcoming deadlines, or events; you can do a funding search to identify possible funders, or access resources to help you.

The website also has details of training courses we run on various aspects of funding – these have a cost, but several are subsidised for Sheffield groups (charging £10 for half day or £20 for a full day).

It’s important for us to get out into communities where we can, to promote our services. If you know of events or meetings where a number of groups will be attending, please let us know.

We’re happy to have informal chats about your group – you can call us on 0114 261 5141 or email enquiries@syfab.org.uk

A little smiler SID on Rodney Hill !!

1 Feb

Stannington Ward Councillors funded the installation of a Smiley SID on Rodney Hill from the Stannington Ward pot.

Picture from left to right: James Connolly, Cllr Vickie Priestley, Cllr Penny Baker, Cllr David Baker

Councillor David Baker – Traffic speeds down Rodney Hill have been a concern for a long time.  Parents and teachers are very worried particularly about the safety of children crossing the road near the school.    In the past we local ward Councillors have  supported the school in their request for traffic calming measures and for funding of a school crossing warden, unfortunately all attempts were unsuccessful.  Our recent request for a Traffic Speed Indicator ( Smiley Sid ) was again turned down by the Council due to lack of available funding.  As all local Councillors have an annual ward pot for small community projects we decided traffic calming was important and we should use some of our budget to provide a Smiley Sid.
James Connolly the Loxley Primary Headmaster – I (and the school community) have been very concerned about children’s safety since the removal of our crossing patrol service last year and this is a positive step.
