Social Welfare & Social Work
FUNDING FOR SOCIAL AID IN THE DIOCESE
There are two trust funds associated with the Diocese which make small grants towards charitable activities aimed at the relief of social deprivation. The Council for Social Aid currently supports projects such as EARTH, the Ely based horticultural centre for those with a variety of long term disabilities, charities working with the homeless, church projects, counselling services, parish nurses etc. The Cambridge Female Welfare Fund, has similar objectives but support is restricted to girls and women. Recently grants have been made to support the Extension Appeal at Whitworth House for homeless women in Cambridge, and the special projects for teenage mothers at Romsey Mill in Cambridge.
Applications can be made from any part of the Diocese but cannot be for individuals. Trustees meet twice a year, in March and October. We are particularly interested in hearing from projects in the north of the Diocese.
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Ely Diocesan Committee for Family and Social Welfare (CFSW) will be formally closing its doors on 31st December 2012. The forthcoming closure of our organisation is due to withdrawal of financial support in the current economic climate and increased competition for funding in the voluntary sector. The Ely Diocesan Committee for Family and Social Welfare (CFSW) has been unable to acquire sufficient funding to continue offering our services and are therefore unable to accept any more referrals to our counselling service. May we please offer you our very sincere apologies that we are unable to help you at this time.
We have attached for your information a list of counselling organisations available within the Cambridge/Ely area which we hope will be useful. Included on the list is the website for The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy – BACP who have a register of private counselling practitioners available in your area. Another access route to counselling might be through your GP who may be able to refer you for counselling through the IAPT scheme – Improving Access to Psychological Therapy.
Thank you to all those who have supported us.
