What Is #HelpAndKindness?

#HelpAndKindness is a project that will serve the people who live and work in Dorset.

It will do this in four ways.

1.  Helping to improve awareness of the support available within the county.

2.  Helping to improve the resilience and impact of the charity and voluntary sector.

3.  Helping to improve awareness of community needs, and of opportunities to respond to them.

4.  Helping to improve understanding of the impact of the charity, public and voluntary sector on the community.


In detail this means:

  1. Improving awareness of the support available within the county.
    There are many formal and informal help and support providers in Dorset, but it is often difficult to find out what is available in a specific location, or for complex needs. This includes provision from the voluntary and charitable sectors, as well as the commercial and public sectors too. The project will promote the awareness of these service-providers and how to access them to ensure that those who need support in the county can find the services that are relevant to them.
     
  2. Improving the resilience and impact of the charity and voluntary sector.
    The project will help to improve the networking between support providers in the county to increase the opportunities for collaboration between them, and enhance the mutual support available to providers from each other, and provide a route for receiving support from other agencies. This will increase the resilience and strength of the service providers, and help to increase the sustainability of their work to support people in the county.
     
  3. Improving awareness of community needs, and of opportunities to respond to them.
    The project will provide the means for service providers to ask for help with running and providing their services. The community will also be able to share information about unaddressed needs and explore ways to meet them. In this way the company will support the provision of help through existing service providers, and encourage responses to unaddressed needs in the community.
     
  4. Improving understanding of the impact of the charity and voluntary sector on the community.
    The project will record who is providing support services in the county and will be able to show the coverage and impact of the charity and voluntary sector providers in the community. This information is important for many providers in showing their impact to their funders, and is also vital in finding new funding streams for services they provide. This information will support the sustainability and growth of service provision in the county.
