Building a Stronger Britain Together funding introduction

Source By: LBH

You are invited to an introduction to the Building a Stronger Britain Together (BSBT) grant and in-kind support fund. The event will be led by the BSBT team and will provide opportunity for Hackney partners to ask questions about the fund and how it might support our work in Hackney.

The Building a Stronger Britain Together programme funds programmes which enable:

• fewer people holding attitudes, beliefs and feelings that oppose shared values;

• an increased sense of belonging and civic participation at the local level;

• more resilient communities.

You can read details from the previous grant round to provide an overview at , the link should be updated later this week for the next round of funding. The third call for grant applications is due to open on 19 October and close end November 2017.

We expect there to be high interest in this event and so places must be reserved using the eventbrite link below. We ask that each organisation books only one place to allow for as many partners as possible to attend.

City, University of London, School of Health Sciences, Disability and Social Inclusion seminar

We invite you to our November seminar:  Technology and quality of life of older people

When: Thursday, November 16th  2017, 1pm-2.15pm

Venue: Room A227, College Building St John Street, EC1V 4PB

To book a place please email Doria Pilling: 

(please give a contact no.)

Speaker: Dr Jacqueline Damant, Research Officer, Personal  Social Services Research Unit, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

The seminar will present findings from an NIHR School for Social Care Research scoping study entitled E-inclusion and access to the ICT sector of older people in England. The project adopted a mixed method approach including a literature review, a focus group and individual interviews with older people, as well as interviews with a range of experts from academia, third sector organisations, and local and national governments. Overall, the results show that many older people report some benefits of using of ICT for certain aspects of their daily life. However, the effects of digital engagement on older people’s quality of life are not universally positive. Furthermore, research methods to measure the social impact of technology use need further development in order to sufficiently capture older people’s experiences in today’s digital age.

Please let us know if you have any special requirements.
