Census of Rural England's Village and Community Halls to launch this week

Census of Rural England's Village and Community Halls to launch this week

Following on from a highly successful Village Halls’ Week that involved over 700 village halls, actively engaged 18 MPs and attracted coverage from Countryfile, national Newspapers and resulted in #villagehallsweek trending on Twitter ACRE will launch a national survey. ACRE has carried out this comprehensive Survey every 10 years and in 2020 is pleased to be working with Power to Change and Sheffield Hallam University. The Survey will be distributed to 10,000 village halls across England by the ACRE Network members and is a crucial piece of work. ACRE will use the data to help secure funding for halls, to ensure that advice and information adapts to the challenges facing volunteer hall committees and that the ACRE Network can continue to provide the very best support. ACRE wants to encourage all kinds of community buildings that provide facilities for their communities to take part. Not just traditional village halls but community centres, sports pavilions, church halls, churches providing community use, community centres, Miners Welfare Institutes, WI halls and community pubs providing meeting rooms ACRE’s Deborah Clarke commented ”Whilst it’s essential for us to have the hard data as evidence to support our work the information collected will paint a picture of the social and economic impact on communities of having a hall in their community and it provides a detailed look at social change over time. We are extremely grateful to all the hall committees that give their time to manage village halls and will take the time to complete this survey”

Recognition award for vaccination uptake amongst care sector staff across the North of England You can help us to help you and the people you care for

In the North of England, NHS England and NHS Improvement and Public Health England have come together to set up an award scheme to recognise the efforts made by the care sector, care homes, hospices and domiciliary care providers, who have achieved a high level of flu vaccine uptake for their staff. This scheme is being implemented following a successful pilot scheme that ran during the last flu season (2018-19). The award includes all health and social care staff who are directly involved in the care of vulnerable patients/clients who are at increased risk from exposure to influenza. Vulnerable means those patients /clients in a clinical risk group for flu, or who are aged 65 years or over and is intended to complement any existing local initiatives. The flu jab helps to protect you from catching flu and it also reduces the risk of you passing the virus on to the people you care for. There is an increased risk of them catching flu because of their long-term condition or disability, and they could develop complications and become seriously ill as a result.
