Robin Hood Lottery – support us!

We are really excited to announce we are officially part of the Robin Hood Lottery.

Robin Hood Lottery was created in 2018 by Mansfield District Council.

Set up to support community projects in the local area, the Robin Hood Lottery operates on the principle of raising money within the community for the community. They empower local good causes to raise money in a fun and effective way.

‘In a time of shrinking budgets and increased community need, Robin Hood Lottery enables people to support the causes they care most about, helping good causes to connect with their supporters.’

A ticket for the Robin Hood Lottery costs £1 per week and 60p will go directly to good causes.

First Robin Hood Lottery draw on Sat 28 April at 9PM

The draw is in 32 days 8 hours 25 minutes

Sexual Exploitation: Abuse not Choice – Defining the Local Response.

Sexual Exploitation: Abuse not Choice.
Defining the Local Response.

In the wake of the sexual exploitation scandals uncovered in Rotherham and other areas, a number of voluntary sector organisations have begun a conversation. It’s a conversation that we’d really like you to join us in.

We feel this is an opportunity to build on the good work already happening in Nottingham and consider what more we can do to not only keep our children safe but to also ensure that all our services – to children, young people and adults –work in a trauma-informed way.

The meeting will be held on Friday 12th December at NCVS, from 9.30am – 1.15pm (including a networking lunch). The purpose of the meeting is to:

•         Hear from our statutory partners about their work in this field and how we can support each other

•         Understand the various local initiatives and projects that are already feeding into this work

•         Consider next steps to strengthen our practice and partnership working locally.

To book a place at this meeting please contact Equation on info@equation.org.ukor 0115 9623237.

We’d be grateful if you could also pass this information onto professionals whom you are in contact with who you think about be invited to this meeting.

There are a limited number of places so booking early is essential.

This meeting is being facilitated by Equation, Harmless and Nottingham Women’s Centre. Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service are providing the room and refreshments.
