DIY Social Impact Reporting
We're planning an event on 1st March (details can be found in the Workshops and Events section to the left) exploring simple ways to do social impact reporting. We want this to be a practical session and in particular want to hear from people who are already recording and reporting on the impacts they have. If you have done some work in this area, and would be interested in running this session with us, please let us know
Hold the date
We are planning a final event to round off the project on 22nd March. We'll send out more details soon but please pencil the date into your diary.
We are keen to do what we can to make sure that you are in touch with other available support, once our project ends at the end of March. We're in touch with Enterprising Bradford, who have told us what support will be available from April. If you think you'd like to continue to access support (particularly around setting up services) please contact us
and we will do our best to put you in touch with organisations that are able to help.
BVCSPP Information Site
Please visit the Bradford Voluntary and Community Sector Personalisation Project information site, where you will find useful information to help you and your organisations take advantage of the opportunities presented by personalisation.
As well as sharing information on Personalisation
we have an Events
section which includes event details, plus presentation and hand-outs from all of our previous events. We also have a section for our Working Groups
where you can find updates and documentation from all of the sessions to date. Our News
and Support and Resources pages
will help you to keep updated with what’s going on in personalisation across England and provide articles and documentation that can help you on your personalisation journey. And check out our Useful Links and Contacts
page for contacts details of organisations that offer support and advice.
Our working group meetings have been going really well and we have had some great sessions. We still have a few places available and it would be great to have more people involved. It doesn’t matter if you were unable to make the first sessions you can still take part. For working group updates and to find out what has been happening so far please visit www.bvcspp.wikidot.com/working-groups
Working Group event dates can be seen in the Workshop and Events section to the left.
Being Socially Enterprising
Instead of the 'being socially enterprising' working group sessions we are offering extra workshops and a DIY Social Business Planning Course. Details of both can be found in the Workshops and Events section to the left.
What Is Personalisation?
Personalisation is a term used to describe the ability to tailor a range of support services to meet an individual’s specific needs. It is at the heart of the government’s drive to transform social care.
The Bradford approach to implementing personalisation is ‘your life your choice’. Based on self-directed assessment and support, it provides customers with individual accounts that they can spend on the services they require to provide them with the care they need.

Bradford Council is committed to doing what it can to stimulate a market for older people’s services in which VCS organisations can deliver services, alongside other providers.
