The Guardian Charity Awards 2008

Author ecorrn     Categories


It's never been more important to nurture innovation and excellence among smaller charities, which are so often overshadowed by the big players of the voluntary sector.

Bidding for BASIS

Author ecorrn     Categories


BASIS is a large funding stream that is currently open for applications from infrastructure organizations. The catch is that only one project will be funded per County so we need to truly work in partnership to make this happen.

The Essex, Southend and Thurrock Infrastructure Consortium (ESTIC) are taking the lead on putting a bid together with support from ECORRN, the Rural Communities Council for Essex and local CVSs.

The FRN has teamed up with Britain's only social enterprise provider of domestic and commercial energy EBICO

Author ecorrn     Categories

EBICO do not charge a fee for people with pre payment meters. The traditional energy companies charge these customers a premium which means that the poorest people are often paying the highest prices for their electricity and gas.

The FRN has agreed to promote EBICO products and they are inviting FRN members, from anywhere in the UK to join them. There will be a payment of £10 for each customer that switches to EBICO which will be split evenly between FRN and the member involved.
