Project ideas – CCRF Round 5

To get you thinking, below are some ideas that could increase an organisation’s capacity to help people mitigate the impact of welfare reform and poverty.  

  • Pilot/test an idea you think might benefit your community 
  • Train staff/volunteers in benefits advice 
  • Bring in-house an external benefits advisor 
  • Develop new systems to track referrals and progress and aid networking between organisations 
  • Set up or provide time for staff to take part in networks around welfare reform 
  • Build local partnerships to ensure clients are more effectively supported 
  • Develop a volunteer recruitment programme 
  • Facilitate knowledge and experience sharing – hosting events with partner organisations, inter-agency job shadowing etc. 
  • Develop innovative support for local people e.g. cheaper food, community food sources, budgeting workshops, peer support groups 

Remember, applicants will be required to demonstrate: 

  • How their proposal will expand/develop the organisations capacity in order to meet demand relating to welfare reform 
  • How it will help bring organisations together in partnership to support people 
  • How it will develop people’s ability to prevent themselves from reaching crisis point
