Susanna’s column Welcome to the December 2013 edition of the Networker. As you will see, we have changed the format, and your new Networker will be packed full of useful information for you, as well as provide a place to showcase some of the excellent work that has been taking place across the borough. Here at SCVS we’ve had a busy few months. In November we ran a very successful Trustee Week event, produced our Annual Review of the year, ran an event for Inter-Faith week, won a National Compact Award for our partnership work and got our NAVCA Award renewed. This month we focus on some of the work Sutton Mencap have been doing, and look at the success that Sutton Foodbank and the Diamond Riding Centre had with crowdfunding earlier in the year. If your organisation has had success with a new way of fundraising, or you’ve found innovative new ways to deliver services or streamline back office functions we want to know about it so we can share your good news in the Networker. We will also be providing tips on making the most of the opportunities available to you, and different ways you can reach people and access new funding streams. This month we give you some tips on how to write a winning funding bid and how to get going with Twitter which we hope you’ll find useful. If you have any comments about the new format, or there is any specific guidance you’d like to see included, or you would like to see your organisation’s work showcased, or you have an event you’d like us to promote get in touch with us by emailing info@suttoncvs.org.uk - The Networker is your magazine so we want your views and input. In the meantime, don’t forget that you can still receive up to the minute news on funding opportunities, legislation changes, what’s on and jobs straight to your inbox with the SCVS e-bulletins. We produce three e-bulletins - a general one, one for organisations working with children and young people and one for organisations working in the health, social care and wellbeing fields. If you do not receive any of these e-bulletins, but would like to, just email us at info@suttoncvs.org.uk and we’ll make sure you are added to our lists. Thank you to all our member organisations for your support in 2013 and lets work together to make sure that 2014 is a brilliant year for Sutton’s Voluntary Sector. We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Susanna Bennett, Chief Executive SCVS

news

Compact winners The voluntary sector and Sutton Council have won a national award for the way we work together. As you will be aware, in February Sutton's commitment to partnership working was re-affirmed in a new Sutton Compact, signed by all local partners. The Compact is the agreement between the public sector and the voluntary and community sectors. It is designed to promote ways of working that improve relationships for mutual advantage. We are absolutely delighted that this work has won a Local Compact Partnership Award, one of the national awards from Compact Voice, highlighting Sutton as the best example of local Compact work in the country this year. In their summing up, the judges said of the work in Sutton: “there is a focus on practical support to enable effective partnership working”. They added, “they have done excellent work in areas such as facilitating the transition to new ways of working and Receiving the Compact Award: Joe Irvin (presenting providing leadership on issues such as the award), Cllr Simon Wales, Victoria Lawson, social value." Susanna Bennett and Chris Parker You can find out more about the awards at www.compactvoice.org.uk

SCVS “outstanding and effective”

Annual Review

Our NAVCA Quality Award has been renewed and we have done really well scoring 3+ (effective/ outstanding on all outcomes) on three of the standards, and 4 (outstanding on all outcomes) on one standard (liaison). NAVCA (National Association of Voluntary and Community Action) is our national body and the award demonstrates a consistently ”high level of achievement" in delivering all the core services expected of a centre for voluntary service (CVS).

Trustees get fired up for the future More than fifty trustees from across Sutton’s voluntary sector turned out on 5th November to our ‘Get Fired up for the Future’ event to mark Trustees Week. Trustees from organisations as diverse as Sutton Women’s Centre, Sutton Mencap. Jigsaw 4U and Learn English at Home to name just a few, took

part in a networking event at the Holiday Inn in Sutton. With three workshops running specifically aimed at trustees, the event was also an opportunity for attendees to learn, and take away some ideas to help their organisations reach their full potential. Sessions took place on managing risk, recruiting trustees and succession planning and leadership and innovation, with the latter being facilitated by our guest speaker Katherine William-Powlett, an expert in the subject, known for her creative, practical and engaging approaches. “Thanks so much for an enjoyable and informative evening, great workshops and really good to network with such worthwhile people” Ann Crago, a trustee at Sutton Women’s Centre said after the event. Feedback from the event was excellent with 98% of participants finding the event useful and keen to take part in a similar event again so watch this space... In the meantime, if you are a trustee of a voluntary sector organisation in Sutton and would like to hear about future events and training specifically for trustees just email us at info@suttoncvs.org.uk and we will add you to our mailing list.

Mayor of Sutton goes Bananas In October an art exhibition to mark World Mental Health Day, was opened by the Mayor of Sutton, Councillor Sean Brennan.

Cllr Brennan, Mayor of Sutton with Geoff Tomlinson from Bananas Art

The Grand Opening of Banana Art’s Visual Art as Therapy exhibition took place on 10th October, showcasing how art can help people recovering from mental health problems and improve their confidence and self esteem. The exhibition opening was held in the Europa Gallery of Sutton Library and those attending enjoyed a veritable banana feast, munching away on banana cake, banoffee pies and banana ice cream, washed down with a glass of wine. The exhibition ran for a week and raised more than £600 from the sale of artworks for Bananas Art, which this year celebrated its 10th anniversary. The mental health charity MIND also marked Mental Health Day with their ‘Time to Change’ campaign to get people to talk about mental health issues, and help reduce

the stigma associated with mental health illness. You can find out more about Bananas Art by emailing artaloud@hotmail.co.uk. To find out more about the national ‘Time to change’ campaign visit www.time-to-change.org.uk

Voluntary Sector Hub a step closer to becoming a reality

Sutton has had a long-held ambition to develop a voluntary sector hub and SCVS, Volunteer Centre Sutton and the London Borough of Sutton have been working together to realise this dream. In October Sutton Council agreed to make The Grove, a building which is part of a collection of historic buildings near Carshalton Ponds, available to the voluntary sector with some financial support. Susanna Bennett, Chief Executive of SCVS said of the move, "The Grove will become a hub for ourselves and other voluntary organisations. It will allow us to work better together and share back office functions and be a centre for volunteering."

hundreds, if not thousands of potential funders, as well as gain publicity for your organisation, and maybe attract people who want to volunteer some time. At the end of July 2013, Just Giving, the world’s leading platform for charity giving, Crowdfunding is a way of raising contacted Sutton Council, who in finance by asking a large turn got in touch with SCVS. number of people each for a Just Giving wanted to work with small amount of money. By organisations in Sutton to get using the internet you have the some crowdfunding projects off opportunity to speak to the ground so a week after first

meeting with them we ran an event to gauge interest from the sector. 39 organisations attended, with 18 of those organisations interested in getting involved further. 12 projects were then selected, and together they formed the Sutton Collective. The challenge was set for the 12 projects to reach their fundraising targets in just 30 days‌

The Sutton Collective projects Clockhouse Youth Project Community Makers Diamond Riding Centre Equinox FMA Pop-in club Mentoring and Peer Support Queen Elizabeth Foundation Roundshaw Youth Project Shanklin Youth Project Sutton Centre for Equalities Sutton Foodbank Talk Easy Trust

The organisations each had a presence on Just Giving’s website (http://justgiving.com/en/ suttoncollective) setting out the details of their project, and how much money they needed to raise. The projects varied from opening youth clubs, to training mentors, to streamlining back office processes. Each project set a target amount of money they needed to raise, and then had 30 days to collect pledges to try and reach that amount. At the end of the 30 days those projects that had reached their targets got to keep the money they had raised.

Success! Two of the Sutton Collective projects were successful and reached their target fundraising amounts. The Diamond Riding Centre raised £1,750 (target £1,700) to keep Polly the pony for a year, helping make a difference to disabled people’s lives. Sutton Foodbank was also successful, raising £900 (target £800) to streamline email and website processes. Other organisations also benefitted from the exercise, even if they didn’t reach their target amount. Equinox got 2000 Facebook ‘likes’, which has led to increased awareness of their work and to extended work with Alcoholics Anonymous, while Surrey Clubs for Young People have established links with Reed Business Information and local councillors via the initiative.

2014 and crowdfunding In 2014 SCVS would like to do more crowdfunding with Sutton’s voluntary sector organisations—it’s a great way to generate funds for a specific purpose, while gaining publicity for your organisation. If you would like to know more about Crowdfunding, and what it could do for you contact Toni Walsh at toni@suttoncvs.org.uk

“JustGiving and SCVS ran a joint initiative in Aug-Sept 2013 to encourage voluntary organisations in Sutton to run crowdfunding campaigns to raise funds for vital local services... As far as we are aware, as the first of its kind in the UK, this initiative was truly innovative, and one we hope to repeat regularly in the future. Toni Walsh and her team were fantastic throughout, and their help and professionalism was hugely appreciated by the JustGiving team.” Just Giving, 2013

How to…

write a winning funding bid Step One: Your One Minute Pitch If someone walked into a room and offered a £1million prize for the best pitch...would it be yours? Put yourself in the shoes of a funder. You have fifty funding proposals to read through and you have to pick out the top five. You’re tired, you don’t know these organisations, their missions, and their people and somehow you’ve got to make a good decision. It’s your job then as the bid writer to help the funder understand who you are and why you are special. You need to capture their imagination, grab their attention and convince their heart and their mind that they should give you money. When you’re writing a bid, follow the seven steps below to create an attention grabbing pitch. 1. The opening – It has to be a BOOM! 2. Needs – How do you know your idea is needed? What pain are you trying to relieve? 3. Issues – Why is the need still unmet? What is it you have identified that others don’t understand? 4. Approach – What are you going to do? Why will your approach work? 5. Capability – Why are you the best organisation for the job? 6. Budget – Can you convince the funder they are getting a good deal? 7. Leave a lasting impression! To find out more about writing a winning funding bid, contact SCVS’s Development Team. There is also a wealth of information on the KnowHowNonProfit StudyZone website at: www.knowhownonprofit.org/studyzone/write-a-winning-funding-bid

Sutton Mencap Each issue in the Networker we will focus on the work of a different Sutton Voluntary Sector organisation and showcase some of the work they have been doing. This month it is the turn of Sutton Mencap, who this year have been fundraising to provide a new sensory room.

Volunteer Centre Sutton

Supporter Michelle Perrett, whose son Max uses the service, said: “From a parent’s perspective, Sutton Mencap has been a lifesaver for us as a family. It has given us a much needed break from the stresses of caring for a child with

Michelle Perrett and her son Max enjoy the sensory room

Established by parents in the 1950s Sutton Mencap provides play, leisure and learning opportunities for children and adults with a learning disability. The charity also offers short breaks for parents/carers and campaigns on their behalf to increase awareness and improve access. In September of this year the organisation’s dreams came true when they opened a new sensory room. Sutton Mencap works with 80 children/young people and over 200 adults with a learning disability in the borough. Increasingly many also have physical/sensory disabilities and a new sensory room was needed to meet these changing needs and provide a place that Sutton Mencap’s members could not only use to run off steam and have fun, but also be somewhere they could relax and explore the world around them. Improved access to the room was also needed so that wheelchair users could use the facilities and relax on the water bed or play in the ball pool alongside their peers, something which in the past has been difficult for them to do. Faced with the task of raising £20,000 to transform their outdated room Sutton Mencap called on the support of members, the local community and several grant makers to help make it happen. Fundraising activities included everything from a 26 mile walk by Sutton United to a school gig organised by the brother of one of their members. Sutton Mencap also had the support of Sir Robert McAlpine (builders of the Olympic stadium!) in decorating the room ready for installation.

considerable needs. The money we have helped raise will only go part of the way in repaying everyone at Sutton Mencap for all they've done for us as a family over the years.”

Volunteer Centre Sutton

Timebanking has arrived in Sutton Register today and join in the skills exchange A new timebank initiative from Volunteer Centre Sutton, Sutton Shares, is encouraging Sutton residents to get involved in their community and reap the rewards. Timebanking is a free exchange of skills between members of the timebank, based on the simple idea that one hour of your time = one hour of someone else’s. It is volunteering in that you give something to help someone else, but you can also receive help for something you need, in return, and it doesn’t have to be from the same person. Even better, if you don’t need the ‘credit’ you’ve earned, you can pay it forward to someone

else in the timebank who is in greater need! Both individuals and organisations can benefit from timebanking.

What skills can I exchange? Most of the skills swapped through a Time Bank are those that you could reasonably expect your neighbour to be able to do for you, such as computer skills, car washing, language skills, cooking, cleaning, ironing, D.I.Y, sewing, baking cakes, gardening, dog walking, musical instrument lessons, decorating…you get the point. Sometimes though, we have members who can also offer professional services for time bank credits too! Sutton Shares members aren’t able to do tasks that need a professional like repairing the brakes on a car, or doing electrical, plumbing or gas work. But there are many things that we can do and we’ll help you discover them at the Introduction to Time Banking Workshop that is part of the registration process.

So how do I register? Just visit

www.suttonshares.org.uk

Once registered, you’ll need to attend a 1.5 hour workshop, and then you can start advertising your skills and looking to benefit from the skills of others. If you’d like to find out more, just email Romanda at R.Simpson@vcsutton.org.uk or call 020 8661 5926.
