Participatory City Foundation

The Chairman welcomed Nat Defriend, Development Director of the Participatory City Foundation (PCF), to the meeting, to speak to the Committee about their work. Participatory City Foundation had received funding from City Bridge Trust amongst several other funders to deliver the Every One Every Day project in Barking & Dagenham.

 

The project was a unique experiment on participation culture at scale, exploring a range of ways for local people to make change happen in their area, and research into how infrastructure could be built to support participation culture. The project would include running openly accessible participation spaces, where members of the community could come in and engage in discussion about what they wanted for their local area, with staff trained to support and develop their ideas. Furthermore, the PCF planned an open access ‘Maker-Space’ warehouse, to be filled with machinery and tools for people to use and develop ideas for their businesses. These services were free for residents of Barking & Dagenham and were aimed at driving employment and opportunities in the area.

 

In the first year of the project, two participation spaces had been opened, with two more opening soon, and a site had been marked for the warehouse. The project had already worked with approximately two thousand people across around nine thousand hours of engagement. Over seventy projects had been created, which was more than anticipated and demonstrated the potential of the project. The PCF was present in nearly forty locations across the Borough other than the participation spaces in order to promote their work. The PCF also distributed a newspaper and had circulated over eighty thousand copies. The newspaper was the PCF’s primary basis of communication and had been a critical tool.

 

The unique funding arrangement for the project meant that the four funders played a critical role, having agreed common metrics, and required a collective commitment to the experimental nature of the project. The project and its potential had attracted huge interest from other cities and boroughs.

 

The PCF had an active online presence alongside the newspaper, but felt the newspaper enabled them to attract more types of people and have a deeper reach into the community. The impact of the project was measured on resident engagement and indications were that the project was having a positive impact, however, the specific impact of the newspaper had not yet been gauged.

 

The PCF favoured the direct route of targeting their work at residents, but also worked with local organisations. The overall vision of the project included strengthening the infrastructure and cross-sector opportunities in the Borough.

 

The Committee thanked Nat for his interesting presentation and commended the Participatory City Foundation for their work.

Report of the Chief Grants Officer & Director of City Bridge Trust

Minutes:

The Committee received the regular progress report of the Chief Grants Officer and discussed the updates provided.

 

HR Update

The Chief Grants Officer and Director of City Bridge Trust (CGO) advised the Committee that the current round of recruitment was almost complete, including the recruitment of the senior communications post. An updated organogram would be circulated to Committee Members once the round of recruitment was complete.

 

Mayor of London – Young Londoner’s Fund Update

The CGO advised the Committee that decisions on medium and large grants applications had been made by the Greater London Authority (GLA) and final information would soon be available. The final cohort of grantees had been informed and the funding would soon be distributed. More organisations than expected needed to achieve the London Youth Quality Mark, but achieving this was a process in itself and was a good cause.

 

Funding from City Bridge Trust would also go towards support network-enablement costs and more specific training to front-line youth workers. Work was ongoing on a front-line mental health support service. As this was a sector where the workforce was not used to such an offer, there might not be a wide take-up at first and may require training and encouragement.

 

Co-opted Members

The CGO advised the Committee that officers had sought advice from the Town Clerk about possible voting rights. Several committees had external members with voting rights, but it was not standard. An external Member could be Chairman or Deputy Chairman, but would require an elected Member to be their Deputy Chairman or Chairman respectively.

 

Members were keen for any external co-optees to be as equal to elected Members as possible. A Member advised that some committees had external Members with voting rights, and there was legislation which covered it. Another City of London Committee

Proposed Revenue Budgets 2018-19 and 2019-20 pdf icon PDF 118 KB

Report of the Chamberlain and the Town Clerk

 ...  view the full agenda text for item 7.

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Chamberlain and the Town Clerk, providing the annual submission of the revenue budget overseen by the City Bridge Trust (CBT) Committee in the context of CBT’s strategic and business priorities, and highlighting adjustments made to the 18/19 budget since it was originally presented in November 2017.

 

A Member raised the point that the allocation of the budget to departments was a matter for the Resource Allocation Sub-Committee, and that a service committee could not agree its own allocation, but rather agree to recommend an allocation. This was acknowledged and a recommendation made accordingly.

 

RESOLVED – That the City Bridge Trust Committee:

 

a)    Review and approve to recommend the updated 18/19 revenue budget; and

 

b)    Approve the recommendation of the 19/20 revenue budget.

The implementation plan was intended to run to March 2020 but plenty of good work was already underway. The Committee noted that the implementation plan would be referred to Summit Group before going to the Policy & Resources Committee in January 2019, rather than December 2018.

 

RESOLVED – That the City Bridge Trust Committee:

 

  1. Note the implementation plan set out in the Appendix;

 

  1. Agree the proposed change to the strategic framework set out in paragraphs 11-13 of this report; and

 

  1. Endorse the implementation plan for onward approval by the Policy and Resources Committee at its January 2019 meeting.

Minutes:

A Member, noting that several law centres were recommended for grants, asked if there were any overarching strategies that might encourage co-operation between organisations, and whether City Bridge Trust could ask organisations to tie in with one another as a condition. The CGO responded that officers asked about networking as an assessment question and often cross-referenced other organisations. A Strategic Initiative on a framework for networking is in the process of being formulated. The Chairman added that the law centres recommended for grants at the meeting were all in distinct areas and provided localised services but asked that framework for networking be looked at as an outstanding action to carry forward.

Roma Support Group pdf icon PDF 92 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

A Member asked how City Bridge Trust officers monitored the use of funding to ensure that there was no overlap into alternative uses. The CGO responded that the funding application was for specific work with people with mental health issues and misappropriation was very unlikely. The organisation was well-established, held in high regard and had been funded previously by City Bridge Trust. The funding was for an employee post and was not distributed to individuals. A Member suggested that the Roma Support Group could be invited to present to the Committee as a presentation on Roma culture and heritage would be interesting.

 

APPROVED £84,800 over two years (£41,000; £43,800) towards the costs of a Project Co­ordinator (21hpw); 2 p/t bi-lingual mental health advocates (7hpw each); and related running costs for a mental health advocacy service.

 

A Member queried whether organisations that received grants of five years could reapply after the fifth year, and how officers worked with organisations to prepare them for the end of the grant. The CGO responded that under the Bridging Divides strategy some of the ‘fallow’ period had been closed and this had been welcomed by the sector. Some organisations were able to reapply straight away if they still needed funding. Officers always discussed plans for after the grant ended and maintained regular dialogue.

 

A Member asked if organisations still found it more difficult to raise money for back office resources and infrastructure. The CGO responded that this was still the case as whilst infrastructure was vitally important it was less appealing to funders.

Strategic Initiative - Funder Plus Phase 1 pdf icon PDF 131 KB

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Chief Grants Officer and Director of City Bridge Trust, seeking approval for two grants under the first phase of the new CBT Funder Plus offer, one to the Cranfield Trust and the other to Locality. It was envisaged that three grants of up to £150,000 (from the £500,000 agreed from the 2018/19 grants budget towards this first phase) would be awarded to providers of civil society support in London to each work with a cohort of CBT grantees to provide a Triage and Connect programme over 12 months to test what good ‘diagnostics’, ‘connecting’ and ‘supporting’ looks like. The process for procuring a Managing and Learning Partner was also underway. If approved, City Bridge Trust would work with both organisations to ensure both offers were aligned.

 

The Committee was advised that it was important that neither organisation used the offer for self-benefit, but there may be some flexibility if the offer was genuinely the most appropriate. A third grant recommendation would be brought to the January meeting of the Committee.

 

RESOLVED – That the City Bridge Trust Committee:

 

a)    Approve a grant of £150,000 to the Cranfield Trust towards a Triage and Connect programme to support the delivery of Phase One of the Trust’s new Funder Plus offer;

 

b)    Approve a grant of £150,000 to Locality towards a Triage and Connect programme to support the delivery of Phase One of the Trust’s new Funder Plus offer; and

 

c)    Approve a condition on both grants that the two organisations work with CBT to ensure their respective budgets and the numbers of beneficiaries are appropriately aligned.

Applications Recommended for Rejection pdf icon PDF 117 KB

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the CGO and Director of City Bridge Trust detailing 16 grant applications that were recommended for rejection. Of these 6 applications were under Investing in Londoners criteria and 10 under Bridging Divides.

 

A Member asked about the reason for rejecting Real Action Ltd. The CGO responded that the application did not meet City Bridge Trust priorities relating to educational institutions. A Member asked why St. Vedast-alias-Foster had been rejected, noting that this was their third unsuccessful bid. The CGO responded that the application was risk assessed in relation to the community programme undertaken at the location by a single external organisation only. Therefore, if that organisation pulled out the programme would not be able to continue and the public access to the building which is a requirement would not be met. The organisation had had this feedback on both previous occasions but continued to apply nonetheless.

 

A Member asked if the guidance on funding objectives and criteria could be provided to Members with the papers as a matter of routine so that Members could be clear on the restrictions on funding. The Chief Grants Officer and Director stated that these are quite lengthy but that a copy could be sent around again for Members to have to consider for the future.

Questions on Matters Relating to the Work of the Committee

Minutes:

A Member said that the Committee had previously approved charitable health organisations. Whilst there was no issue in funding things that had a proven benefit, the Member added that they would be less comfortable with the idea of funding elements such as homeopathy, and asked whether City Bridge Trust had a position on this. The CGO responded that the Trust did not currently have a position, but would look into the matter and come back to Members.

 

A Member suggested that the Committee could mirror the Gateway process used at other committees and provide a cover sheet which set out a summary of criteria for the Bridging Divides strategy and grant applications to make clearer how each application fit the criteria and met the City Bridge Trust’s priorities. The CGO responded that this could be provided as a separate annex and tabled at meetings, or could be circulated electronically with the agenda before meetings.
