Money for Old Lags

Nottgirl is reporting that Nottingham Equal has been given a grant of at least £20k by One Nottingham, although it could be up to £90k.

My money is on the latter, as this (expired) job advert for a Project Manager there offers a wage of £30kpa and this advert for 'Community Facillitators' involves 2 posts at £25k each.

I feel another Freedom of Information request coming on...

Update; unfortunately Local Strategic Partnerships are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act so that puts the kibosh on that idea. Need to have a little think...

Further note; it just so happens that Cllr Hassan Ahmed is the Chair of One Nottingham's 'Fairness Commission'.  Those coincidences just keep on piling up don't they?

Interesting that an organisation that is worthy of this level of public funding and is in a position to recruit and manage staff and to style themselves as the representatives of the BME sector and of 'new arrivals', has, according to their website, no policies or infrastructure and is still advertising an event that is at least 3 months (possibly 15 months) out of date.

Exactly. And see the updates I've just added to this post and you might see a clear strategy appearing.
