Northamptonshire Community Foundation

Dear Community Facilities Member

Earlier this week, Northamptonshire Community Foundation (NCF) announced the launch of the Coronavirus and Recovery Fund to address the unprecedented strain on the voluntary sector. Grants of up to £3,000 will be targeted at local groups supporting people in their community facing a range of social issues including social isolation, food poverty, poverty and poor mental health. More »

If you know of a group, such as a Good Neighbours Scheme or care and share group, in your community they may be eligible to apply for a grant. They will, however, need to be properly constituted.

You can find further information about the Fund including eligibility criteria here.

NCF will signpost eligible groups which are not yet properly constituted to Northamptonshire ACRE's Rural Officer, Jennifer Hedges, for help with adopting an appropriate governing document.

Kind regards

Frances

Communications Briefing

A new campaign called #NorthantsTogether has been launched today (Thursday 02 April) to help share local information and advice about Covid-19.

Organisations across the county will all use the shared hashtag and phrase NorthantsTogether, which will make it easier for local people to find local updates and discover the support, advice and information that is available across the county. And help them to recognise the enormous amount of activity going on to support the community during this outbreak. More »

We will also use #NorthantsTogether through social media to join us together, show appreciation of all key workers across the many sectors supporting the joint effort; and recognise and thank the people of Northamptonshire for playing their part in reducing the spread of Covid-19.

We will all start to use the #NorthantsTogether hashtag on our messaging to the public from today onwards.

In addition, we are working together with the communication leads to develop a multi-agency, co-ordinated plan to ensure there is regular scheduled information, updates, advice, and reassurance messages being shared across the county from a range of organisations.

Importantly, this campaign is about local recognition and local alignment. We are clear that we still have a responsibility to share and use national messaging and hashtags, so we are sharing the most relevant, recent and accurate information via the communications in our county.

How can you help?

  • If you use social media please retweet/share the messages from your own organisations and those you see from partners using the #NorthantsTogether hashtag.
  • If you are sending out your own tweets either in recognition of your staff, volunteers or members of the public for their work/support please use the hashtag #NorthantsTogether
  • Please encourage those individuals in your organisation who are senior or influential social media users to use the #NorthantsTogether hashtag and to ask them to share your own organisation and partner's tweets/posts.

Other national hashtags to remember to use:

#StayHomeSaveLives

#coronavirus

#ThankYouNHS
