Deadline Fri 2/10//20 - contracts to support individuals complete digital first 2021 Census - count all Londoners

Help support individuals to complete their 2021 Census application. Apply for a contract to deliver the Census Support Service opportunity. Deadline Friday 2 October. Good Things Foundaation's Online Centres have an exciting opportunity for partners to apply for funding to support the delivery of the 2021 Census.The census takes place every 10 years in the UK - and the next one is due to take place in March 2021. It’s a compulsory survey that gives the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. The information collected from the census helps inform local authorities and government about demands for vital public services such as school places, hospital and GP services and social care provision.

Census 2021 will be ‘digital first’ and accessible through an online platform. Good Things Foundation is working with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to build a network of Census Support Centres who can support people to complete the census both online and offline, ensuring everyone has the chance to complete the census digitally. They are looking for organisations who can deliver support to people wishing to complete the census between March and May 2021. You’ll be required to deliver the service across a set amount of hours each week with the possibility of additional delivery covering evenings, weekends and the census weekend. https://www.onlinecentresnetwork.org/news-and-activity/news/census-support-service

HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network

HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network is a network of voluntary and community sector organisations across London working for equality, rights and social justice and against discrimination. We are currently funded by City Bridge Trust, Trust for London and the National Lottery.

Under our Bridging Divides funding we work to ensure that specialist equality and human rights groups, particularly the smaller and user led ones, and the Londoners they work with, can connect and work together across London and across equality specialisms. With our members we work to make equality issues central in local and regional decision making, and to raise awareness and work more closely with universities, think tanks, professional bodies and business. This funding also supports our core activities as a network: regular bulletins and information provision, knowledge sharing, signposting, website and networking.

The Trust for London project funds our Policy and Campaigns work, which supports organisations to campaign together on equality and rights issues of joint importance. Currently campaigns are focused around support for Deaf and disabled refugees and asylum seekers, hate crime, mental health equality, LGBTQI+ diversity and Digital Exclusion. We lead for Disabled customers on the National Asylum Stakeholder Forum Equality Sub-Group, who work alongside the Home Office to ensure the rights of asylum seekers are protected, and facilitate Charities Challenging Hate Crime, the London pan equality hate crime network.

In the NetEquality project, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund Reaching Communities, through the Cornerstone Fund, dozens of smaller user-led and ‘grass roots’ equality groups and equality partners in London are working together. Over an initial two years, to mid 2021, we will design, test and pilot exciting new ways to use networking and online tools to strengthen our connections and quickly and easily share information and knowledge. We will be exploring ways to join up our voices for solidarity and influence and for more coordinated, effective campaigning to fight discrimination and improve equality in London. Through Stronger Together, funded by Awards for All, we provide activities and support for individual campaigners and those in the smaller, user-led and grass roots groups.
