On behalf of Wadebridge Foodbank:

 

We're recruiting for our SMART Tenants Money Box Course

Can You Help?

Are you currently working with anyone who would benefit from our Moneybox Course https://www.wadebridgefoodbank.org/esf-money-box-course/ 

As part of the European Social Fund, we are working with Eccabi and Cornwall Housing to run a SMART Tenants MoneyBox Course. This is a course for anyone who is a tenant, aged 16-64 and unemployed. It will help people to budget, build their confidence and manage their finances and prepare them for Universal Credit.
 
We are currently recruiting for the next course which starts on Friday 15th September at Chestnuts in Bodmin. It will run for 6 weeks during term-time from 9:30am-2:30pm. We can cover childcare costs (with an Ofsted registered childcare provider) and travel expenses.
 
Please could you circulate this to your team. If you know anyone who you feel would benefit from this course please let us know and we will send through a referral form to you. You can call us on 01208 815374 or drop us an email at contact@wadebridgefoodbank.org 
 
We can also organise a catch up with your team and John Ede from Eccabi who has a wealth of knowledge regarding Universal Credit and how it will affect anyone on benefits.

We have been asked to relay the following advert for Lay, Town and Parish Representatives to the Standards Committee of Cornwall Council:

 

CORNWALL COUNCIL

APPOINTMENT OF TOWN AND PARISH COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVES and LAY MEMBERS TO CORNWALL COUNCIL’S STANDARDS COMMITTEE

Do you believe in the importance of high standards of conduct in local councils? If so, you may be interested in joining Cornwall Council’s Standards Committee to help maintain and promote such standards.

The Standards Committee are looking to appoint to fill recent vacancies and require two Town and Parish Council Representatives and one Lay Member to sit on the Standards Committee. To be eligible to be a Town and Parish Council Representative you must be a member of a Town or Parish Council in Cornwall and not a member or officer of Cornwall Council. To be appointed as a Lay Member you cannot have been, in the last five years, a member or officer of Cornwall Council, or a member of a Town and Parish Council in Cornwall.

For both roles previous experience of an ethical standards regime, whilst not essential, is an advantage.

These are voluntary roles, but a small allowance may be payable and there will be travelling and subsistence expenses.

If you think you meet these criteria further information and an application form can be requests from Simon JR Mansell MBE, Assurance Service, Cornwall Council, Treyew Road, Truro, TR1 3AY email: simon.mansell@cornwall.gov.uk.uk

The closing date for applications is 12 Noon on 12 September 2017
