Help us get a picture of why people help out in their local communities & what might be stopping others from getting involved…
We want to find out a bit more about people who give some of their time to help in their local communities. For example, some people may:
– Organise a knit and natter group
– Help out at a Stay and Play session
– Coach a youth football team
– Run a local choir
– Be a key holder for a community building
We would like to know more about why people get involved with helping their local community and what might put others off doing so. In this survey, we call anyone who gives his or her time free to help out a ‘volunteer’.
It would be helpful if you could take a few minutes to answer some questions. All the information we gather will be treated confidentially –information will be collected by Kirklees Council and only shared with Communities United Project and Third Sector Leaders Kirklees.
Please share the survey with your volunteer teams and anyone else who you know helps out in your community, and fill it in yourself if you give your time for free in any capacity.
Year 3 Report on Their Work to Support People in Disadvantaged Areas to Create Community Activities
Attached is some
information regarding the Community Activators Scheme which is a project funded
by the Big Lottery (started Feb 2016) and delivered by Communities United
Project (CUP). It is a 4 year project which helps people in Kirklees to step up
and create activities for young people.
and young people’s services have been hit by cuts, so what can we do?
The answers vary from
community to community but here at CUP we support people in disadvantaged areas
to create great community activities.
Our work develops strengths, builds skills and
opens up routes to training and qualifications.
We create change. It starts with community activities and ends with stronger, more resilient individuals and groups.
