Newsletter 28 June 2018

On this day in 1491, the future King Henry VIII of England was born, the second son of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. He succeeded to the throne in 1509, due to the earlier demise of his brother Arthur, and went on to have 6 marriages, beheading 2 wives, divorcing 2 more, seeing one wife die following childbirth and having one wife survive him. He broke away from the Roman Catholic church to form the Church of England, destroying many Catholic monasteries and taking the lands and wealth for the crown. He executed Catholics who failed recognise the new church and, to show how fair he was, he executed Protestants who complained that he wasn’t executing enough Catholics. Seems like a very tolerant, and even handed chap.

MOVE Matters:

• The Big Lottery Fund has explained in earlier BBO GDPR Update emails that the DWP are the Data Controller for the personal data collected on the ESF and BBO programmes in England, while the MOVE Project Management team are considered as the data processor. The DWP have recently published a number of additional Action Notes that provide further guidance following the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

• Action Note 020/18
This document provides further guidance on a range of topics including:
• the DWP’s personal information charter
• an update on notifying existing participants of their new rights
• how Right of Access Requests (RARs) should be handled, and
• what to do if there is a data breach

• Action Note 022/18
This document includes template wording in section 3 for a more detailed privacy notice that explains how participant’s data is used to evaluate the ESF programme. This includes sections on:
• what the purpose of collecting participant’s personal data is on the ESF and BBO programme,
• what the lawful basis for collecting the data is,
• how long the data will be retained, and
• how participants can contact the DWP about the processing of their data.

• Children’s Links are organising a cross cutting themes event, which will take place at the Hillside Community Garden in Lincoln (part of the Green Synergy empire) and involve a large scale picnic, on Thursday 13 September, between 11.00am – 4.00pm. More details to follow from Annamarie, but in the meantime you should pencil the date into your diaries.

• Aaron Hodgson, of Grantham College will be moving on in early July. His contribution to the project has been immense, and he will be sorely missed. In terms of the day-to-day running of both our MOVE and Steps Forward contracts, these will continue as before with your main contacts Vicky Herbert for delivery, Michelle Spencer for admin and claims, and Jennifer Riordan for finances. Please can you pass this information on to anyone else within your teams who need to be aware of this. Jennifer is putting together messages of best wishes from partners for Aaron, so if you have anything to add, please let her know and she will include them.

• Finally, don’t forget that the delivery group meetings take place in July, at VANEL on 17 July (10.00-12.00) and Taylor ITEX on 25 Jul (09.30-11.30). Invitations were sent out a while ago so if you’ve yet to respond, please consider doing so in order to let us know how many people we can expect.

• Vacancies with Voluntary Centre Services (VCS)
VCS has four exciting opportunities for highly motivated individuals to join a small team as part of our Social Prescribing Service. The Social Prescribing Service, developed alongside the Integrated Neighbourhood Teams (INT’s) in West Lincolnshire provides a means of enabling primary care services to refer patients with social, emotional or practical needs to a range of local, non-clinical services. Our new team members will support the development of Social Prescribing in Lincoln North and Lincoln South, building on the success of the Gainsborough pilot project. All posts are initially funded for one year.

Social Prescribing Navigators will be responsible for delivering a person-centred service, supporting people to improve their health and wellbeing by connecting with services in their community. Navigators will be a vital community resource, responsible for patient engagement and developing effective working relationships with health care professionals and third sector providers.

Project Support Officers will provide dedicated support to the development of the Social Prescribing service, act as a point of contact for enquiries and referrals, support with marketing and communications and provide administrative support for the office.
