thankQ develops enhanced volunteer module with Canal and River Trust

first_imgAccording to The Charity Commission there are currently around 2.7 million volunteers working in England and Wales. Whilst many volunteers give a small amount of their time to help out during one off events, more and more are choosing to put years of experience to good use by taking up permanent, highly skilled volunteer roles.As a result, charities require ever more sophisticated CRM software solutions which can help them to effectively manage a whole range of volunteer opportunities and relationships and to effectively measure and demonstrate the impact of their volunteer workforce.thankQ has been working in partnership with the Canal and River Trust to develop a functionally rich volunteer with recruitment module which allows not for profit organisations to easily fulfil any type of opportunity, matching the volunteer roles with the skills, experience and, if applicable, the geographical location, of its volunteer database.

This will be critical for us as we develop our fundraising strategy further, enabling us to make decisions based on long-term lifetime value not just immediate return on investment’.In the near future, thankQ will be incorporating the SaaS aCloud functionality recently designed by the Access Group – this will enable volunteers to manage their expenses in real time and on any device.

The scheme is designed to offer an enjoyable way for pupils to learn entrepreneurial skills together with the basics of financial education.So far nearly 3,000 children have been involved in the test phase in the North East and North West of England and participating schools have made a combined profit of £10,000.Virgin Money offers schools an interest-free loan of £5 for every participating pupil, up to a maximum of £250 per school, for 50 pupils. Pupils are then encouraged to form small teams, pool their money and create a small business and develop products or services they can sell.In the process they are encouraged to think carefully about their target audience, product costing, pricing and marketing. Schools keep any profit made after the original loan has been paid back. Virgin Money staff volunteers get involved to help make the scheme a success.Clent Parochial Primary SchoolFor example, Year 5 and 6 pupils at Clent Parochial Primary School in Worcestershire made £386 in profit recently by taking part in the scheme.Headteacher Christian Hamilton introduced Make £5 Grow to 31 pupils earlier this year. It was so successful that he now plans on expanding the number of pupils taking part.He added: “Being able to use and apply skills that are taught in class to real-life situations has helped the children develop in confidence and teamwork, demonstrate leadership skills and have fun. Parents loved it too. We’ve had some great comments.”The profits have been invested in a class trip to West Midland Safari Park in Kidderminster, as well as the purchase and care of a new school guinea pig, and there are still some funds left over to invest in the expansion of the scheme.Pupils at other schools have used the money to sell calendars, bags and cupcakes. Some of these businesses are still running and continue to make a profit for their school.Details are available on 0191 279 4676.

NYC transgender community demands ‘Justice for Islan Nettles!’

first_imgWW photo: Greg ButterfieldNew York — Despite bitterly cold temperatures, more than 100 people — chanting “Not one more!” — protested Jan. 30 outside New York Police Department headquarters in lower Manhattan to demand justice for Islan Nettles. Nettles, an African-American transgender woman, was brutally beaten in Harlem on Aug. 17. She died from her injuries five days later.Eyewitnesses reported that a man named Paris Wilson attacked Nettles, shouted anti-trans and anti-gay slurs, and beat her while she lay helpless on the ground.Wilson was charged only with misdemeanor assault. The charges were later dropped.Trans community activists say the NYPD failed to question witnesses, gather evidence or even check on Nettles’ condition in the five days following the attack.Community members say this is typical of how police in New York and around the country look the other way in cases involving anti-trans violence, especially against transgender people of color.The protesters are demanding answers from District Attorney Cyrus Vance and Police Commissioner William Bratton, including a full report to the community on the status of the investigation and an audit of all NYPD precincts for their conduct in investigating crimes against trans people.Activists promised to continue mobilizing to win these demands.The action was organized by the Transgender/Cisgender Coalition; ACT UP NY; Luz’s Daughter Cares; TWOCC: Trans Women of Color Collective of Greater NY; STARR: Strategic Trans Alliance for Radical Reform; LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent; and others.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Facebook Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites WhatsApp Emailcenter_img LIMERICK City and County Council chief executive Conn Murray has been urged to hire additional outdoor workers to maintain essential public services across several council departments.Labour Party councillor Joe Leddin believes that frontline outdoor staff play an important role in ensuring that the council can deliver essential services to meet the needs and expectations of the general public.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The City West representative also claims that a significant fall in the numbers of in-house trades people such as carpenters, plumbers and electricians has contributed to the “less than satisfactory turnaround of council-owned houses with 110 currently vacant throughout the city”.“The lack of outdoor personnel in the Environment Department has seen an increase in the use of private contractors to cut grass and maintain open space areas.“This has resulted at times in shoddy work being done with cut grass scattered all over roads and footpaths and the edges of green areas not cut at all,” Cllr Leddin told the Limerick Post.He also points out that every time there is a weather alert or emergency it is the outdoor staff who put their “shoulder to the wheel” in clearing roads footpaths etc. to enable the public to travel and move around the city safely.“Just last weekend, we had Storm Hannah resulting in fallen trees and debris in many areas of the city. Once again from early morning council crews where working hard to remove trees and ensure public walkways where safe for pedestrians and motorists.“Our parks are managed and kept in magnificent shape while the flower arrangements on the city bridges are also maintained by very little staff. While we all collectively acknowledge the essential role played by our outdoor council crews, we must now invest further in hiring additional staff to help improve the public services that many people are dependent upon,” he declared.

Senior Housing Wealth Hits $7.14T

The quarterly NRMLA/RiskSpan Reverse Mortgage Market Index reported that homeowners 62 and older saw their housing wealth grow by 2.7% or $104 billion in Q1 2019, up to $7.14 trillion. The index rose to 257.12 in Q1, an all time high since 2012. The NRMLA reports that the increase was driven mainly by an increase in home values, as seniors saw a $110 billion increase in their home’s values. “Reverse mortgages have become an essential component for addressing a huge problem for many Americans—funding retirement,” said NRMLA President and CEO Peter Bell. “More than 1.12 million families have used a reverse mortgage alongside side their 401(k)s, IRAs, savings, investments, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid to cover life’s daily expenses, so they could live more financially secure lives. As with all major financial decisions, a reverse mortgage should be part of an overall strategic plan, with input from knowledgeable professionals, and family members who may be impacted.”As senior housing wealth increases, there may be more incentive to tap into that equity through a home equity conversion mortgage (HECM). Reverse Mortgage Daily reports that HECM endorsements rose 12.7% in April, reaching 2,899 loans, according to Reverse Market Insight (RMI).The report added that retail endorsements grew at 6.5%, and wholesale growth increased by 21.2%.“Strong Wholesale growth outpace[d] slower Retail results,” said RMI President John Lunde. “But both [channels are] contributing to a solid month of volume.”Lunde added that this trend has been ongoing, but may lead to decreases in the near future.“Wholesale has performed better than Retail volume the past four months on this report now, and is at 45% of the market in April,” Lunde said. “That market share is the highest it’s been in a year but seems more likely to recede a bit than continue increasing in the next few months given the prior 11 months were in a range of 36.8-41.8%, making this more of an anomaly so far.”Seven of the top 10 lenders saw gains in April, as they outpaced the overall industry. Liberty increased 66.4% to its highest level since March 2018, Synergy One grew 19.7%, and One Reverse saw a 16% increase.
