If community groups are struggling to get themselves into a position when they can tender to run services on behalf of Councils they have been able to access some support under my Department’s Our Place and First Steps programmes. And local authorities keen to explore partnership working with community groups have been supported through our Delivering Differently in Neighbourhoods programme. While there is no guarantee that we will be able to conitnue these programmes after April, there is some funding out there for groups wishing to upskill themselves – worth talking to your local CVS, checking if you have a local Community Foundation and keeping an eye on national government programmes from Dept of Health to Office of Civil Society and DCLG, and others such as Power to Change and Big Lottery.
