The Resource Bank has been set up to include all sorts of things that may be of help to the MOVE partners. It will contain the MOVE policies which are there to help you, but we’re also looking for partners to let us know of websites that could be useful, of forms and documentation that they may use that helps ease processes etc. If you have something like this, then please let Les know, by sending a link, or a PDF document, or whatever it is and he can add it to the ‘Bank’. Please have a look at what we have and see if you can add to the list. Some of the items can be reached simply by clicking on the title, while others will need their web address copied and pasted into a new browser.
With the onset of GDPR all partners should, by now, be aware of the requirements and responsibilities of organisations that collect and store client data. Below are some things that might be of use to you. The examples have been compiled for VCS to use, and may require some work still, but they will give you the idea of what they may look like. Please use them as you see fit. The guide is produced by a private sector organisation and is a very good overview of the new legislation. For futher, more complete, guidance then please use the link below to the ICO site.
From Rose Regeneration (External Evaluators for MOVE): An explanation of what counts as Rural and Urban areas
Elefriends is a supportive online community where you can be yourself. We all know what it’s like to struggle sometimes, but now there’s a safe place to listen . It is a moderated site operated by Mind and provides a useful forum for support. They have loads of different communication ways including single tap signs to validate feelings and acknowledge receipt and sight of messages so that individuals who are having issues with verbalising feelings are still able to acknowledge without having to put things into words. The site is moderated 24/7 and allows for Private Messaging to be turned off so that there is no specific requirement or pressure to respond.
Did you know that Samaritans are now doing a response service by text – ideal for anyone with hearing impairment. The number is 07725 909090, and their email address is email@example.com. Just thought this might be useful on occasion for some of our participants and clients.
