Website launches with free impact tools for small & medium sized charities

first_img The Inspiring Impact programme launches a new website today (15 April), with a suite of free how-to guides and self-assessment tools for small and medium charities to help them understand and increase their impact. The Inspiring Impact site has been made possible through National Lottery funding. It combines Inspiring Impact resources with those of the Impact Management Programme following their merger in August 2018, and will hold resources from across the sector, from research reports and diagnostic tools, to outcomes frameworks and surveys.The tools and resources have been co-designed with 200 charities and social enterprises, to make the support responsive and relevant to organisations trying to improve their work with limited resources. This includes the Data Diagnostic, a five-minute questionnaire that provides tailored recommendations about what data to collect, which has already been used by over 600 people to review their data collection methods. Over 110,000 people have used these resources already and by consolidating them in one place it is hoped that they will be accessible to more charities.The website is particularly aimed at small or medium charities without dedicated impact management staff and the content aims to help individuals to identify the practical steps people can take to improve their practice.The Inspiring Impact programme has been running since 2012. It is funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment, City Bridge Trust and The National Lottery Community Fund. So far it has supported over 70,000 charities with over £1m funding to achieve good impact practice.Judith Rankin, Development & Delivery Manager, Sported, said:“Inspiring Impact’s network, support and resources have massively helped to develop both Sported’s own impact practice and that of our members. Our staff team have benefitted from the opportunity for peer-learning with other Inspiring Impact Champions across the UK, and many of our member groups have utilised the Measuring Up assessment tool which provides an excellent framework to identify priority areas. We look forward to exploring the new website and resources to build upon our work developing the evidence base for the Sport for Development sector.”Joe Ferns, UK Funding Director at The National Lottery Community Fund, said: Advertisement  255 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis28 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis28 Tagged with: impact Melanie May | 15 April 2019 | News “Thanks to National Lottery players more community organisations and charities will be able to better plan, measure and improve their impact with Inspiring Impact’s new website and tools.

Farm Conference

first_imgThe University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and UGA Cooperative Extension are partnering with the UGA Small Business Development Center to host a Farm Business Education Conference on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center.The purpose of the conference is to help farmers learn more about the business aspect of farming. Industry experts will conduct sessions on value-added agricultural ventures and other topics relevant to growers.“UGA Cooperative Extension is excited to once again be partnering with the UGA Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Each of us brings unique expertise and advice that together will result in better information for our clientele,” said Laura Perry Johnson, associate dean for UGA Extension.Attendees will learn how to develop a business plan for their farming operation, including plans for effectively passing the business over to the next generation. Agricultural lenders will be on hand to offer tips on how to successfully obtain operating lines, real estate and farm loans and working capital funding. Certified human resource professionals will discuss how to manage employees of farms.“When you think about farming, people understand there’s a product that’s being produced, but there’s a business side to farming too. Our goal is to assist new and existing farmers in understanding what is required to have a profitable season or assist with understanding new requirements that are coming down. The goal is to help educate on the business side of farming,” said Rob Martin, a business consultant with the UGA SBDC.Martin, along with Sarah Cook from the Georgia Department of Agriculture, will conduct a session, “From Seed to Shelf,” where they will offer strategies for selling products in local, regional and national markets. Attendees also will have the opportunity to learn about food and production safety with different commodities.“Each of these partners are part of Public Service and Outreach for the University of Georgia. We come together, pooling our resources; the UGA SBDC as the business side, Extension with their extensive knowledge of the industry and specific products, as well as the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. We will bring that information together to provide opportunities for people to learn,” Martin said.Conference attendance cost is $49 and includes lunch. The conference will begin at 7:30 a.m. and conclude at 4 p.m. Those interested in attending should preregister at www.georgiasbdc.org/georgia-farm-business-education-conference.For more information about UGA Extension, see extension.uga.edu.last_img read more

Trail Mix: Dan Lotti and Dangermuffin

first_imgThough singer/songwriter Dan Lotti recently left Folly Beach, South Carolina, for the mountains of western North Carolina, his former homestead on the beach will always hold a special place in his heart. While in Folly Beach, Lotti – along with Mike Sivilli and Steven Sandifer – founded Dangermuffin, a band that, frankly, could not have originated anywhere other than surfside.Dangermuffin’s sound – an incredible blending of bluegrass, folk rock, spacey jams, and reggae – is a modern day folk surf soundtrack. I was hooked after taking a first listen Moonscapes, the band’s 2010 release. I am now spinning Songs For The Universe, the band’s newest record, virtually nonstop. Each time I listen, I am overwhelmed by an easy-hearted mellowness. I can’t help it. Lotti and his mates have a knack for writing music that resonates with positivity and good vibes. It never fails that, after listening to Dangermuffin, I just feel better.I recently caught up with Dan Lotti while he was in Folly Beach to chat up Dangermuffin’s hometown. Based on his descriptions, I have a trip scheduled for the not too distant future.BRO – Favorite local band?DL – There is so much great music going on here in Folly Beach and we only have a handful of bars. I am a big fan of The Travelin’ Kine and Weigh Station.BRO – Must visit spot for an out of towner?DL – That would have to be Bert’s Market. It has a great late night menu and the deli station makes sandwiches twenty-four hours a day. They have a fantastic growler station and all sorts of beach munchies. Bert’s is the heart of Folly Beach.BRO – Favorite place to see a band?DL – My favorite local venue is the Surf Bar. That’s where we got our start as a band. There was a beautiful vibe every Sunday evening with bluegrass, surf videos, and woodstoves.BRO – Favorite eatery?DL – I love Lost Dog Café on Folly Beach. It is always packed on weekends and the experience is always memorable.BRO – Cool historical tidbit?DL – Folly Beach was almost named Gershwin Isle. Porgy and Bess was written here, so when you hear “Summertime, and the livin’ is easy,” that there’s Folly Beach!It looks like Dangermuffin will be taking the balance of 2014 off, but January finds them all over the Southeast, with dates in North Carolina, Virginia, South Carolina, and Georgia already slated. For more information on those dates, others on the schedule, or how to get your hands on Songs For The Universe, fly over to www.dangermuffinmusic.com.Also be sure to check out “Little Douglas,” a track from the new record that includes Keller Williams on bass, on this month’s Trail Mix.last_img read more

Dodgers have questions, no manager as GM Meetings begin

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Regardless, the Dodgers want him to shed pounds from his listed weight of 255. “He has continued to get bigger and stronger each year,” Friedman said. “It may not be the optimal size for him to play 150-plus games.”Puig played 148 games in 2014 and only 79 games this year.Pederson was a model of good health. Only one Dodger (Adrian Gonzalez) had more plate appearances than Pederson’s 585. But he failed to adjust once the league figured out how to exploit his long swing. In his first 220 plate appearances, Pederson had a .267 batting average and 17 home runs. In his final 365, he batted .177 with nine home runs.“Both those guys (Pederson and Puig), you’re not asking them to change and become someone they’re not,” Friedman said. “It’s just getting back to what they were.”Grandal, 27, recently had surgery on his left shoulder and is expected to recover in time for spring training. After a strong start to the season, his offense faded along with his shoulder in August and September. He and backup A.J. Ellis finished with nearly identical batting lines (.238/.355/.403 for Ellis, .234/.353/.403 for Grandal). “Those are three big wild cards heading into the 2016 season,” Friedman said of Puig, Pederson and Grandal. “Being around them for a year, seeing their work ethic and what they put into it gives me optimism they will be contributors next year.”Will Pederson and Grandal be starters next year?“I don’t know yet,” Friedman said. “I expect both of them will be one of 13 in the position player group. I don’t know yet.”AlsoGreinke, Kendrick and Anderson all received qualifying offers last Friday — a standard one-year, $15.8 million contract for 2016. Friedman said he hadn’t heard back from any of them as of Monday afternoon. The deadline to respond is Friday. … Friedman said no coaches are under contract for 2016. … The Dodgers are “reaching out and having conversations” with candidates to replace Stan Conte, Friedman said. The Dodgers’ medical director and head athletic trainer resigned after the season. … Pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu, who missed all of 2015 following shoulder labrum surgery, remains on track to begin next season healthy, Friedman said. “We’ll be looking for a manager who can adapt to different personnel,” he said, “and someone who can appreciate the strengths of the guys on our roster at any given time and put them in the best position to succeed.”According to a source, Friedman will interview Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez during the meetings in Boca Raton, Fla., bringing the list of known candidates to nine.So, what about those guys on the roster?Friedman said he is counting on bounceback seasons from catcher Yasmani Grandal, center fielder Joc Pederson and right fielder Yasiel Puig, all of whom struggled for various reasons in 2015.Puig, who turns 25 in December, spent more time nursing injuries to his hamstrings than he did on the field. He finished the season with a .255/.322/.436 slash line, along with 11 home runs and 38 RBIs. How much his timing at the plate was disrupted by two lengthy trips to the disabled list is debatable.center_img In one sense, Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman entered the annual GM Meetings on Monday in a similar position as his peers. Acquiring pitching, particularly starting pitching, is his top priority. Friedman said Monday he likes his depth at Triple-A, but he might need to replace two-fifths of his rotation by the end of the week. Second base is the only other question mark on the field.In another sense, the Dodgers’ situation is unique. They’re the only major league team with no manager. With 36 players currently signed to the 40-man roster — no Zack Greinke, no Howie Kendrick, no Brett Anderson — the final product could look very different in 2016.For that reason, Friedman said, the new manager will need to be flexible.last_img read more
