A new report has been shared with NAVCA by the Muslim Charities Forum, a partner in the Vision for Volunteering. The report, “Mapping Anti-Muslim Discrimination and Information Manipulation, and its Impact on Humanitarian Aid and Development", touches on the issues hindering the work of Muslim-led charities.
Last year, NAVCA helped members use the Big Help Out to promote their local volunteering work, by providing a communications toolkit and running the #VolunteerReady campaign, which aims to engage people in long-term, meaningful volunteering in their communities. We will be running this campaign again this year as part of NAVCA'd wider Four Functions of Infrastructure campaign.
In the meantime, They are engaging with the organisers of the Big Help Out to try and make sure local infrastructure is well-represented and that NAVCA members can engage with the campaign in the way that suits you best. NAVCA are holding a meeting on Tuesday 9th April, 12-1pm, for all NAVCA members, where we will be sharing their communications toolkit for this year's campaign, which will include Volunteers Week, the Big Help Out, Small Charity Week and #VolunteerReady. Sign up to that meeting here.

Big news from Elisha House Recovery Community
They're building a community crossfit gym to support not just substance misuse, but the entire community. With £320,000 already secured out of the £343,000 needed, they're close! Plus, every donation made to their crowdfunding will be matched up to £10,000. Now, they only need to raise £13,000 more.

Please bring something to share with the group.
The final local government finance settlement for 2024-25 was published on 5 February. Despite the additional £600M for adult social care and children's services announced at the end of January, the total 7.5% increase in core spending power is insufficient to meet local authority funding commitments, with an expected shortfall of at least £1Bn for the next financial year.
