Our toolkit has been updated. The toolkit helps civil society/third sector organisations simply take advantage of the opportunities of Para/Olympic games in 2012 and also consider any of the challenges that may arise during games time. The toolkit can be found here – Greenwich Third Sector 2012 Impact Tool – Feb2011
GAVS has developed a ‘tool’ to help Greenwich third sector organisations identify and plan how the London 2012 Games may benefit and impact on your services and activities. It contains lots of useful information on how your organisation and clients can make the most of the 2012 Games, whether in employment, arts, sport, volunteering or making the most of your venue.
Information is also included on what adverse implications the Games may have on your services and how to make sure you plan for this. The tool also includes 2012 funding information.
We welcome your feedback on the tool, which will be regularly updated. If you would like further information on how to get involved with the 2012 Games, please contact either Jo or Pauline at GAVS.
You can download the tool here.
Did you know? A Greenwich 2012 Third Sector Network meets every two months to track progress on priorities for the third sector in relation to 2012 Games and Greenwich. These priorities were identified by local third sector groups and made into an exciting action plan on which we very much appreciate your feedback /comments/input. The next meeting is on 11th Jan 2011, 10am-12noon, at the Forum @ Greenwich. If you represent a third sector organisation and want to attend please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone 020 8858 1363.
