Welcome to the eighteenth edition of our e-newsletter!

This fortnight we have sourced some useful resources for the voluntary sector and in addition to these we are advertising another job opportunity with SVS.

Furthermore, we have been asked to advertise an opportunity to be on BBC3's Free Speech programme, some other events in the city and we also have a funding opportunity, in addition to our funders of the week.


Who do they think we are?

Public view of charity
NPC has published "Mind the gap: what the public thinks about charities". This research It explores whether recent attacks on charities from politicians and the media have adversely affected attitudes.

HOPE Community School

Plans for a new primary school in SO14
Billy Kennedy (New Community) and Paul Woodman (City Life Church) are supporting an application to the Department for Education for a new Primary School in the city centre by local community leaders. The bid will be for a new Free School led by New Generation Schools Trust. The basis for the bid is the lack of school places in Southampton City Centre from 2015.
