The RotherFed Friendship Calls project was shortlisted for the “Excellence in Community Action Award” at the Annual Tpas Awards which took place on 8th October 2021, and we have been successful.
Our CEO, Phil Hayes, would like to say a big thank you to all our amazing volunteers that have given so much of their time up to help isolated people in our communities through some really difficult situations. Also a huge thank you to all our staff team that have been involved in and created an incredible service through their passion, resilience and hard work.
During the Covid-19 Pandemic Rotherham Federation are working with funders and contract providers to fulfil our commitment of Strengthening Communities in Rotherham. This is including changing how we work in order to comply with Government guidelines as well as safeguarding our members, staff and the community as a whole.
In April 2016 Rotherham Federation won £401, 800 from the Big Lottery’s Reaching Communities Fund to deliver its Community Voices and Choices project. The 36-month project adopted the Community Organiser approach seeking to address the lack of social capital, building community strength and empowerment in eight of Rotherham’s most deprived communities.
This is the final evaluation of the project produced in January 2019.
