Good Grief Community Events grants
8 January, 2020

 

Funding is available to help organisations run community events and activities for the Good Grief Festival which takes place in May 2020. This is a brand new festival to encourage people to think, talk and learn about grief - a topic that can often feel taboo.

The programme of events already includes talks, exhibitions, workshops and films, but community activities will make up an important part of the festival schedule. 

 

This guide aims to equip campaigners and communicators to change hearts and minds on equality.

Land use think tank, Shared Assets, has released new research which aims to provide a detailed snapshot of common good land use in England.

Shared Assets is a social enterprise think and do tank that promotes land management for the common good, rather than personal gain.

The group estimates that there are 900 of these groups in the UK and the report maps their activities, as well as their structures and needs.

 

Land use think tank, Shared Assets, offers a range of different resources to support people and community groups that manage land for the common good.

These range from interactive toolkits on tenure models for community or land based enterprises, to written guides on growing food in parks, as well as various reports and research.

 

The Windmill Pub, in Windmill Hill, which has been for sale since March 2019, may be turned into flats if a buyer cannot be found by March 2020. However, there is a possibility that local people could take on the pub as a Community Asset.

This public meeting, open to everyone, will discuss the options available to the pub, led by local residents who have organised the campaign to save it. 

The meeting is an opportunity to share your views and hear more about the options for Community Asset funding.
