Following a community organising campaign, ACORN UK started in 2014 when a group of residents in Easton joined together to take action against unscrupulous landlords.  Through a network of volunteers trained and empowered to organise in their local communities, ACORN currently works to combat evictions, fight rip-off tenancy fees and insist on healthy housing.

The aim of this course is to support practitioners and managers working in (often non-clinical) children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing settings to understand outcomes focused practice and why it is important for their organisation. Participants will understand the benefits of implementing an outcomes approach and how this could be developed at their organisation. Part of the session will cover practical aspects of choosing and using outcome and feedback measures. Participants will also be aware of the types of CORC support available and how to access this support.

This set of resources to help organisations collaborate provides support through the whole cycle of partnership development from research through planning to legal contracts:

What does social value mean? How do commissioners design services to create it? And how do organisations work to build it with their clients and communities?

This toolkit aims to bring commissioners and organisations together to agree what social value means and how to create more of it locally.

A message from the young people on the Bristol Shadow Safeguarding Children Board:

"Dear teachers, support workers, engagement workers and youth workers

Please find attached letter regarding the ‘Our Opinion 2017’  City Wide BSCB Shadow Board survey.

We are asking that you support us in engaging all young people aged between 11-18 by asking them to provide us with their views on what safeguarding issues impact on them!

We are launching the survey on Tuesday 7 February 2017 which is Safer Internet Day.
