Changes to the Data Protection Law - GDPR

Data Protection in the UK is changing in May 2018 and the new law gives individuals (you and me) more rights over how information about them is stored and used by organisations (a PCC or a Diocese for example). In particular, organisations have to tell individuals what they are doing with the information they are storing and using.  This new law is known as the GDPR (the General Data Protection Regulations) and parishes must comply with its requirements.  There are some free workshops designed for parishes being held on 19th March.  Click HERE to find out more.

 

Spreading the Word - The Oasis Centre’s Wellbeing Café 

The Oasis Centre is a registered charity and voluntary community organisation based in St Columb Major.  The Centre was established in 2008 to support local people in need. Through their Wellbeing Cafe they engage with some of the most lonely, isolated and vulnerable people in the area.

Trustees are available to share the story of how the Oasis Centre developed to inform others thinking of setting up a similar social action project in other local areas. 

 They are available to meet with church groups to:

  • tell their story and outline their work as an example of Christian outreach and social action.
  • think about the opportunities in their communities and take steps to meet the needs of local people.
  • explore how this may encourage future funding opportunities for your church.

To book a meeting or presentation please contact:

The Core Strength – Local Communities initiative provides funding for essential core running costs for small locally led community organisations.  Grants between £1,000 to £5,000 for up to 12 months are available to local community organisations with an annual income of up to £100,000. The initiative will sit under the Comic Relief programme of Building Stronger Communities – supporting groups who work to make their communities more connected, empowered and productive. 

Gilly Green, head of UK grants said, “We at Comic Relief recognise the importance of these community led organisations and their critical work. We also know that sometimes even the basics of keeping the lights on can be a struggle at the moment, let alone time to plan and invest in growth. At the heart of this funding is to give organisations the choice of where their needs lie – be it paying for the rent and lighting or invest in development and forward planning. We are proud to lead this approach and invest into the heart of our local communities”

The Cornwall Community Foundation are pleased to be working in partnership with UK Community Foundation and Comic Relief to deliver this programme for 2017/18. For the full guidelines please have a look on our website https://goo.gl/KAkNSu. The first deadline is on the 16th October followed by the panel on the 27th November. You apply online for this programme, the online application is available on our website.
