What the Network does depends on you.
1000 Lives was funded by Stoke on Trent City Council from 2012-2018, and supported in-kind by partners providing venues, training and practical support.
In 2017-2018 we had funding from Seedbed and the Lottery Awards For All to develop the Network to reach more people including online.
We started a Local Organising Group in 2020. We had support from Community Organisers Ltd and All the Small Things CiC to develop a Local Organising Action Plan. Find out more here.
The 1000 Lives Steering Group is looking for more funding to develop the Network. We want to focus on:
- Inclusion – promote Equality and Diversity, make sure new people know they can join, support people to take part especially people who are not on email/ internet
- Collective voice and influence – enable people to speak up and take action together
- Trusted support and information, neutral, reliably available
- Sharing resources using Got It Want It
- Training – short workshops and full training days and courses
- Partnership working
