Did you know that Tees Valley Rural Action serves as the rural infrastructure organisation for East Cleveland? We need your support!

As the regional Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) representative, we have steadfastly worked with limited funding across the Tees Valley, focusing on East Cleveland, for many years, influencing policy and change for rural communities. If you’ve ever received support or advice from us within East Cleveland, we kindly request that you complete the survey. Your input will ensure that the new funding partnerships are aware of the valuable support we’ve provided.  This includes assistance with Village Halls, Community Buildings, Accounts, Funding Applications, Governance and setting up as a CIC, CIO, Community Group support through Big Local, East Cleveland Good Neighbours Food Bank, Volunteer Support, Trustee/charity support, Network events, community transport, or our new and fabulous East Cleveland Development Officer Sam!  The list is truly endless!

Six Strategic and Funding partners seek VCSE support needs in Redcar and Cleveland

The Woodsmith Foundation is co-ordinating a VCSE sector consultation on behalf of Lloyds Bank Foundation, Rank Foundation, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, Tees Foundation, The National Lottery Community Fund and Woodsmith Foundation.

They would like to find out more about the support and development needs of organisations in the local voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in Redcar and Cleveland. They are keen to hear about what support services you need and how you would like those services to be provided.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and will be anonymously collated. The summary findings will be shared with the six organisations above and a report will also be produced for the VCSE sector. It will be used to explore how they might fund support that will meet the needs of, and advocate for, VCSE organisations in Redcar and Cleveland.  You may receive information about this survey from more than one contact, but please only complete it once. The survey partners are happy if more than one person from each organisation completes the survey as they appreciate the support needs of volunteers, paid staff, and trustees might be different.
