Are you an organisation that can you help us make Community Connections? If so please look at this opportunity….

1st December 2021

Gateway Family Services along with being joint Lead Facilitator for the Neighbourhood Network Scheme in Edgbaston also oversees the Voluntary Sector Early Help offer.  Early Help is an initiative led by Birmingham Children’s Partnership in association with third sector partners and it’s aim is to provide services and support to make life a little easier for families experiencing hardship.

Since Gateway Family Services began its role in summer 2020, it’s worked with 550 families however there is still a feeling that there are parts or specific communities in the constituency that the offer isn’t reaching.  Gateway, knowing the wealth of community groups in the area sees this as being the key to broadening and improving what it’s already doing.  It seeks a partner organisation in each of Edgbaston’s four wards: Edgbaston, Harborne and Quinton (we already have a partner in Bartley Green) to work side by side. The ask would be to share contacts and connections with the ultimate focus being to improve access between families and services.  Might your group or organisation be able to help? If so full details are in the attached Expression of Interest Doc below

  • We are looking for organisations that are based in the area they wish to work with
  • A payment would be attached to the work and we would work on formal terms through a service level agreement
  • we anticipate the arrangement lasting for a maximum of four months (end of March 2022)
  • You would work closely with our team, particularly our Community Connector

To apply there is a simple form, including three questions that require a short response.  Deadline in Sunday 5th December
