GROW YOUR TENNER 

We are calling on people to help us to gain extra funding through Localgiving’s Grow Your Tenner campaign. We will be using the funds to support volunteer training costs. Grow Your Tenner 2018 will start on 11th December 2018 at 10am and will run until the match funding runs out (or 10th January 2019 - whichever comes first). 
 
You can help by setting up a monthly donation during the campaign. After the first six monthly donations, the following six monthly donations will be doubled, by a maximum of £10 per donation. This means a gift of £10 a month, plus gift aid, would provide us with over £200 in funding.  

 Christmas Closing Hours  We will be closed from Friday 21st December until Wednesday2nd January 2019. 

 
Last year OCAY supported 342 clients

New Principles for Grant Reporting 

‘Funder-led. Bureaucratic. Time-consuming. Misunderstood.’ All words that have been used to describe UK grant reporting – the process (or processes) by which charities report their progress to funders. We’re part of a group of funders and charities who have developed a set of principles to make grant reporting a shared, more meaningful and mutually beneficial experience. We are asking funders and funded organisations alike to feedback on the six principles that we believe will help to change the perception of grant reporting as a burdensome process and reframe it as a shared endeavour. We are also inviting funders to join the initial group in testing and using the principles. 

Office Hours 

Our office opening hours are 10am to 3pm Monday to Thursday and 10am to 2pm on Friday.
