Newsletter for the Week of 20th June 2022


PEGS - Michelle John

VCSA Member Feature: PEGS

A Shropshire based social enterprise is shining a light on a formerly-hidden type of domestic abuse.

Michelle John – founding director of PEGS - began offering support to parents, carers and guardians experiencing Child to Parent Abuse just over two years ago, helping more than 2,000 individuals in that time.

The organisation has also trained frontline professionals across the UK (including police officers, charity volunteers, and social workers); consulted on the development of regional and national policy and frameworks; helped write the Home Office CPA guidance for the Domestic Abuse Bill document; launched a DWP-backed Employer Covenant; and raised awareness through print, radio, broadcast, digital and social media.

Michelle explains:

“CPA impacts at least 3% of UK households – probably more, yet the true prevalence and impact is unknown due to a history of under-reporting and lack of research. We now have dedicated researchers and campaigners who are helping to highlight the issue – but there is a long way to go before CPA is known about, and understood, on the same scale as intimate partner domestic abuse.

It has a profound impact on individuals, families, and society as a whole – with parents being verbally or physically attacked, some every single day; being forced to reduce their hours or give up work; experiencing financial abuse, coercion, control and even sexual abuse. Roughly every 19 days in England and Wales, a parent dies at the hands of their child.

We support any parent being impacted by CPA (regardless of the age of their child, including adult offspring), while working alongside other organisations who directly support the children. We always listen to, believe, and empower parents who share their experiences with us – providing safe spaces for them to share what’s going on behind closed doors.”

And PEGS is growing - they have just received a £300,000 grant from The National Lottery Community Fund to support the growth of their work. The money will help PEGS to open a new hub, take on additional staff, and to support an increase in services such as calls, drop-ins, advocacy, workshops and programmes.

As part of their mission, PEGS is set to host the first-ever Child to Parent Abuse Awareness Day this autumn (Friday 14th October) – they’re inviting individuals and organisations to help spread the message by hosting an event, posting on social media, or sharing information with their colleagues or friends. 

Anyone who’d like to host an event can email PEGS to receive a resources pack. If the event will be open to the public, PEGS will share the details on their website and across their social media. You can also download a graphic here that you can share on social media to raise awareness for CPA Awareness Day..

To find out more about the social enterprise, which supports parents across the UK and has its headquarters in Shrewsbury, simply visit their website or search PEGS Support across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Charity Commission Proposes 16 Extra Questions to Annual Return 

The Charity Commission is running a consultation on its proposed new approach to the annual return, and a new set of questions it plans to include. These changes would come into effect from 1 January 2023.

The Commission is proposing to implement a maximum of 16 new questions around themes including financial governance, charity operations and structure and employees and volunteers. Its questions aim to collect additional data in relation to specific risks to ensure greater accountability and transparency across the sector. 

For instance, charities will be asked whether 70% or more of their total income depends on one income stream and whether a quarter or more comes from donations to determine whether they have exceeded certain thresholds. 

Read the full story on Civil Society news.

In a recent blog post, the NCVO is urging all charities to provide their feedback on the Charity Commission's consultation about the additional questions. You can do so here, and this consultation is also listed in our roundup of Current VCSE Engagement Opportunities (below).

New NPC Research:

Full Cost Recovery in VCSE Contracts

New Philanthropy Capital (NPC) have produced new research conducted in partnership with Kent County Council on the benefits of full cost recovery contracts, and the risks of not delivering contracts on this basis.

Through their research they found practical tweaks which could help providers make good decisions around full cost recovery within the traditional commissioning model, especially around how overheads are budgeted for. Tight budgets mean difficult strategic choices will still remain, so they recommend a collaborative approach to navigating these.

Ultimately councils and voluntary groups across Britain share the same goal of ensuring that people in their communities enjoy excellent services. The NPC hope this research helps commissioners and providers to work together to achieve that.

Outstanding Communities Award logo

Shropshire’s Outstanding Community, organised by the Shropshire Community Foundation, wants to offer all communities within the county the opportunity to be recognised and to celebrate the strong, supportive community spirit, whether it’s a community within a town, a village or even a street or housing development. They want to shine a light where people come together and support each other, where  people  have developed a safe and thriving environment in which to live.

Plenty of great things go on within our communities which does not always get duly recognised. ‘Community’ is a term that can be used very broadly. In this context it is not about aesthetics -gardens, borders and flowers!  It is more about relationships, bonds, identity and where people have come together with a collective investment in their neighbourhood, where attitudes and interest are commonly shared.

The Award organisers encourage people who take pride in their community, both rurally and within our towns, to come forward and showcase what they have achieved. It is an opportunity to tell everyone about the great things that are going on within your community and celebrate why it’s great to live in Shropshire.

The categories are:

  • Small Community / Village
  • Large Community / Village
  • Town
  • Community Group / Organisation

Download the entry form here. Deadline for entries is 30th June 2022.

You can also download this poster about the award to help spread the word on social media!

Procurement bill image

The Procurement Bill: A Voluntary Sector Response 

Online - 12th July 10.30-11.30

The Lloyds Foundation for England and Wales in partnership with the NCVO is hosting an online discussion on the Procurement Bill.

The Procurement Bill sets out the proposed new rules that will shape how government at all levels ‘buys’ public services. If you are involved in public service delivery, the new rules will affect you. They are being introduced now that we no longer have to follow EU procurement laws.

The Bill, published in May, proposes some changes to the rules which Lloyds Bank Foundation think could be helpful for charities. Yet they think the Bill doesn’t reach its potential and that there are a number of areas where it could be strengthened to increase small charities’ ability to access funding alongside improving the public services that people access.

If you’re keen to find out more about the Bill and discuss what needs to change, join the Lloyds Bank Foundation for a session they're hosting in partnership with NCVO on 12th July from 10:30 – 11:30.

You can find out more and register to attend on their Eventbrite site.

tennis racket and ball

Trustee/Treasurer Needed: Tennis Shropshire

Tennis Shropshire would like to recruit an accountant to join the Committee of Trustees of Tennis Shropshire, acting as Treasurer for the organisation and providing financial and commercial leadership to the Trustees and to the organisation generally. If you have an accountancy qualification, an interest in community sport and a wish to contribute to the health and wellbeing of your community then this could be the role for you.

Tennis Shropshire is a registered charity, affiliated to the LTA and is run by the Committee of Trustees
made up of volunteers from across Shropshire who share a common goal of supporting and promoting
participation in tennis across the county.

Tennis Shropshire is opening a community tennis centre, funded through a combination of grant and
loan funding, and has also recently registered for VAT. The County has also become a registered charity and is required to comply with the governance requirements of both the Charities Commission and the LTA. Accordingly the County would like to appoint an experienced accountant to replace our long-serving treasurer who has decided to step down after a number of years of service.

The treasurer will be responsible for ensuring that the organisation fully complies with charity
accounting and the financial aspects of the wider governance requirements. They will also be
responsible for liaising with the LTA, other funders and sponsors, for filing annual accounts, for
drafting an annual budget which supports the delivery of the County’s strategic plan and for providing
reports to the Trustees on expenditure against budget and other financial matters. They will also be
responsible for raising and paying invoices and will provide financial leadership to the Trustees
generally, as well as acting as a member of the Committee of Trustees.

In addition to an accountancy qualification an interest in tennis would be an advantage but is not
essential. Nor is it essential to live in Shropshire although some in person attendance at Trustee and
other ad hoc meetings will be required. Time commitment to the role is anticipated as being around
24 days per annum, and an honorarium of £1,300 will be paid to the successful candidate who will
also have the opportunity to attend major national tennis events.

For an informal chat please email Fiona Jones, Tennis Shropshire Chair or phone 07549 045885.

Download a Trustee Recruitment Pack here. To apply for the position please email Fiona Jones with your CV and a covering letter explaining why you are interested in the post. Closing date for applications is 30th June 2022.
