    • Early System Change Fund
      Since October 2016 a number of pieces of assessment work have been carried out in Clackmannanshire. In particular, it has highlighted the high levels of looked after children caused by neglect, presence of domestic violence and substance misuse. The introduction of the Big Lottery - Early System Change Fund in July 2017 presents a clear opportunity for third sector, statutory and health partners to come together to identify gaps in services and how best to help construct solutions jointly to put forward a collaborative bid to the fund to help support the necessary programmes of need.

    • Volunteer Managers Forum
      In January of 2017, our Community Breakfast was themed around Volunteering and Volunteer Development.  We had guest speaker Karen Miller, Development Officer with Engage Renfrewshire.  She shared her story of developing a Volunteer Managers’ Forum in Renfrewshire and started a discussion around whether a similar forum would be beneficial in Clackmannanshire. From there, over 50 organisations fed in to the process of creating a forum for Clackmannanshire.  The aim of the Forum is to provide a space for Volunteer Managers’, and others who interact/work with volunteers to engage and work together to:
      • Share resources / best practice / be cohesive
      • Network
      • Support each other with events
      • Create a bank of volunteers to share
      • Have ‘spotlight’ sessions whereby groups will deliver a brief on their projects
      • Invite beneficial speakers
      • Share/inform others of training
      This online forum will complement our monthly meetings, and provide a space to more easily converse and share resources quickly.
