Find volunteering opportunities and meet other volunteers at the Brent Cross Shopping Centre in Barnet on Monday 3rd June

This year’s Volunteers’ Fair is about shouting about our wonderful volunteering community and making it more visible in the Borough. Barnet is strengthened by its interlinked network of community groups, organisations and individuals who work together harmoniously to make it a better place. If you’ve not already, Monday 3 June 2019 is your chance to become part of the positive change that these residents are creating.

We will also be celebrating Barnet's unique diversity. As the London Borough with the highest population, Barnet is a melting pot of faiths and ethnicities. With the socio-economic challenges we face today, it’s important we celebrate our ability to work together in one community. We will be teaming up with the Jewish Volunteering Network (JVN) to bring you the Volunteers’ Fair; working together to inspire inclusive volunteering across the Borough.

The Fair, which will take place at the bustling Brent Cross Shopping Centre, is an opportunity for everyone in the community to meet and build a better Barnet. In addition to celebrating our veteran volunteers, this event is a chance to inspire people to volunteer and welcome newcomers. If you want to find out how to get involved and donate your time, this is the perfect opportunity to find out more.

Every hour of volunteering counts, so whether you microvolunteer at the fair or find a more regular role, your attendance makes a difference. There will be the opportunity for individuals to meet organisations and find out more about their volunteering roles. If you are an organisation and would like to have a stall at the fair, let us know.

It’s drop in so come whenever! Sign-up here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/barnet-volunteers-fair-2019-tickets-60123043642

Hackney SOUP: Crowdfunding dinner for local community projects, 23 May

Hackney SOUP: Crowdfunding dinner for local community projects, 23 May

Description

About

The SOUP format was started in Detroit several years ago, by Amy Kaherl, to endorse and support community projects that were in need of funding. By bringing people within the community together, she has seen relationships flourish across business, art, music and charity. We are inspired to bring this concept to Hackney.

Format

Hackney crowdfunding dinner.

  • 4 pre-selected projects have four minutes to share their idea and answer 4 questions from the diners. Food is served after the presentations, giving people time to discuss and vote.

  • The projects can be about ANYTHING! No restrictions.

Goal

SOUP is a place for people to gather and to feel safe. Each individual who walks through the door is agreeing to grant the money to the project they think is most deserving through democracy and critical conversation. At the end of the evening people will vote on the project they think is most worthwhile. The winner will recieve all the money donated through tickets + Our/London Vodka will match the pot. We then ask past winners to come back in a few months to share with the community what they did with the money.

Donation

Entry is by donation, we will be adding up the total donations to be awarded to the winning project at the end. Our/London Vodka will match donations to contribute towards the fund.

Recommended donation: £10, sign-up via Eventbrite.

Anti-Muslim Prejudice and Islamophobia in Schools

by Tell MAMA UK

Hear from experts and community voices about the discrimination, bullying and anti-Muslim prejudice experienced by children in schools.

About this Event

Tell MAMA, the only national and independent monitor of anti-Muslim hate crime, would like to invite you to a public discussion on Islamophobia and anti-Muslim prejudice in schools. Tell MAMA provides confidential assistance to those who experience anti-Muslim prejudice, abuse, racism, discrimination, and Islamophobia in the UK. Our groundbreaking research is shaping government policy, including the Hate Crime Action Plan.

We are looking to hold an event which aims to empower parents, students, and teachers to better understand how to deal with examples of Islamophobic and anti-Muslim bullying, racism and discrimination. Discussions will also cover the complaints processes in schools, how to talk to children about bullying, and how the Equality Act 2010 can challenge discrimination in schools.

We have a range of speakers from the Department of Education, civil society organisations and experts in the field of education.

We look forward to having you with us on the day, to secure your place, please RSVP to: rsvp@tellmamauk.org
