Tender for HUB v2 with revised plan

Creating a Community Hub

Project Plan February 2015

Jill Preston & Mike D’Souza

Brief Synopsis

  • This is a proposal to refurbish the Community Shop and an adjoining unused room in the ground floor of the Madingley Tower block.
  • The aim is to create a Community Hub and refreshment s area for all who live, work or learn in Norbiton Ward.
  • The Hub would provide residents with free Internet access and support for their IT needs.  Participant community groups, charities & public services could meet each other for mutual support and to engage with residents to recruit their volunteer support. Local events and services will be advertised on a screen in the Hub’s front window.
  • This Hub will also provide a small office space for One Norbiton facilitating its current activities i.e.          a) Running its ‘Surrey Save’ credit union outpost, b) its branch of the Food Bank and  c) Its Norbiteens project to enable youth on the estate to get work experience.
  • Additionally these facilities could enable us to set up a baking oven to interest the Norbiteens and other local people in cooking and to produce bread and buns.
  • Surveys have indicated that this initiative is wanted by both the public and all participant groups
  • The project works will be overseen by a committee of the current participant groups and, once the work is finished this committee will continue to supervise the running of the Hub through a management committee derived from participating groups and Local Authority representatives.
  • The budget for this project is estimated to be at least £17,000.   This will be mainly sourced as follows: £5000 One Norbiton DCLG grant to hand £5000 RBK Housing (prior promise) £5000 (In kind) from Axis and other RBK Contractors plus money raised from locality schemes and additional grants.
  • The project will be led by local CRE resident and CREst Chair Jill Preston with the support of the One Norbiton Community Working Group, of which she is Secretary.

Executive Summary

This is a project to refurbish two areas on the ground floor of the Madingley tower block to serve as a community hub. We believe that this will be both practicable and of benefit to our council and our local population. We already have evidence from community needs assessments that many existing charities and public services would welcome its creation and would support the proposed use of these centrally situated premises. For example: The Police, Citizens Advice, Surrey Save, Community Connected, Refugee Action and LEAH. This includes;

  • The intended use of the building and a project timetable.
  • The structural work could be completed in a single phase and then further equipment could be added as demand increased.
  • A technical feasibility study is being prepared showing the cost of bringing the buildings up to a suitable standard for the proposed use.
  • Alternative places were examined. These were the Old Laundry in Cambridge Gardens and the currently derelict Surrey Sports Centre. The costs of refurbishing the former was £70k and the latter £350K which is why both were rejected
  • A plan which sets out the capital set up costs and on-going revenue costs and how this is to be funded
  • How we propose to evaluate its outcome and how the community will be consulted via our e-democracy service

Although the Council would not want to enter into any long-term arrangements which may potentially impact on future estate renewal/regeneration proposals, they have already proposed leasing these premises to One Norbiton for a peppercorn rent. Any lease would need to include redevelopment break options in the Council’s favour to protect the Council’s position on this basis. Furthermore because One Norbiton cannot at the present time guarantee its funding beyond three years, the most likely option favoured by both parties would be for a lease with a term of initially 3 years, and rolling annual or five yearly breaks thereafter.

  • The overall budget for this project is currently estimated at approximately £15,000. We believe this can be sourced as follows:
  • £5,000 of this has been allocated out of the £42,000 DCLG grant to One Norbiton,
  • A further £5,000 has been promised by RBK housing. An unspecified sum of work towards Community needs has been included in the Axis contract.
  • There are also various funds such as ‘the Bill fund’ and a residual CDF grant that could add to the pot. Finally there is merit in trying to raise the residual required from the locality.
  • Key issues still to be resolved are who would use it and share its running costs.

 

What is a Community Hub?

Our concept of a Community Hub is a place that serves as a venue for various communal activities:

  • A meeting point for public servants, charity workers and local residents.
  • A place where a range of useful services may be sited such as a branch of the Credit Union and Citizens Advice Bureau.
  • A convenient place to obtain free internet access and be supported with IT needs.
  • An educational centre where our local youth can be organised to do jobs and gain job experience in traditional trades such as Baking and perhaps newer activities such as 3D printing.
  • A warm and welcoming coffee/tea venue to promote mutual understanding and collaboration between people wanting to improve the quality of life in this locality
  • A site for the Office of One Norbiton*

The regulation of the Hub will be by a steering committee of its permanent users led by One Norbiton CWG. The chosen place for this Hub is the present Community shop combined with a recently discovered unused back room on the ground floor of the same Madingley Tower block.  RBK Housing has now offered One Norbiton this space for rental at a peppercorn rate.   They have even been quoted in the local press!  However, this document will be used as a tool to seek formal agreement of this project.

Background

The present Community Shop was equipped by the CAP project over five years ago. CAP was publicly funded by the PCT and RBK it seems therefore sensible for us to build on the efforts already put in.

Specifically, One Norbiton exists to improve the democratic involvement, health and quality of life of those who live, work and study in Norbiton ward and the surrounding areas.    Therefore creating a hub will assist in furthering all  of our aims and promote effective community engagement.

Why is this project needed?

Norbiton is an area of deprivation with 27.4% of children in the Norbiton ward living in poverty.  Within one LSOA (Lower Super Output Area) in the ward, 39.5% of children live in poverty, whilst on the Cambridge Estate, 45.2% of children live in poverty.  This compares with 13.8% for the borough as a whole.

(Source: Royal Borough of Kingston website, Data Observatory: Children: Child Poverty; accessed 21st May 2014)[1]
(Source: One Kingston Child Poverty Needs Assessment Refresh 2013)[2]

Within Norbiton, the Cambridge Estate area is the most deprived LSOA in the borough, ranking in the top 5% most deprived in England.

(Source: Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames Borough Profile 2010/11, p19; accessed 21st May 2014)[3]

Because of this manifest need there are many public service and Charitable activities directed towards this locality.  Unfortunately participants often do not know about each other’s existence. and only a few personalities involved know each other. This generates overlaps and potential for Kudos jealousy   as, at one time, existed between the two Residents Groups of CREst and CRERA. One Norbiton has a  broad brief, which includes interest in all issues that affect quality life, including health and housing. Also it has the key mission to obtain the democratic voice of the whole ward, such that people living in the owner occupied areas of Norbiton will come to see that it is in their own interest to collaborate with their neighbours in social housing to assist in solving existing disadvantages. In particular to ensure that local youngsters get better opportunities.  Indeed Local surveys have consistently reported the following three key issues:

  • Antisocial behaviour
  • Lack of youth provision
  • Poor general environment of the area as a place to live in

Surveys include:

  • One Norbiton Community Panel 2012/2013 (120 responses)
  • Play-scheme Project 2009/2012 [169 responses]
  • CAP/CREst project survey 2007 and 2009
  • CREst Fun Day survey 2011
  • You Can project 2010
  • Cambridge Road Estate Residents Association (CRERA) survey (29 responses)

(See Appendix 2 for example details from the One Norbiton Community Panel survey)

Anecdotal responses gleaned from community contact (door-knocking for other projects / consultation, meetings etc.) also confirm these needs.

One of the principal users of the new Hub will be our Norbiteens. They will address these three issues by:

  • Engaging young people with productive activities so they avoid anti-social behaviour, whilst at the same time learning skills and principles which will set them on the path to a positive future
  • Making a difference to the living environment through the work of the young people

 

One Norbiton’s Values

Norbiteens is committed to:

  • Listening to all residents in the Norbiton area including young people
  • Empowering young people to make choices regarding issues that affect them
  • Placing young people at the heart of the organisation
  • Encouraging young people to be themselves and to pursue what they wish to be.
  • Respecting young people’s identity, sexuality, age, ethnic background, faith and beliefs
  • Providing a safe environment where young people can feel free to discuss any issues that they have

 

 

 

The Marmot Review (2008) also reflects our values

1. Give every child the best start in life
 Enable all children, young people and adults maximize their capabilities and have control over their lives

2. Create fair employment and good work for all

3. Ensure healthy standard of living for all

4.   Create and develop healthy and sustainable places and communities

5. Strengthen the role and impact of ill-health prevention.

 

Pilot

We have been using the existing Community Shop facilities for 18 month with the Surrey Save Outreach.  Also our Norbiteens’ have had their work organised from this venue and have been given various teaching sessions such as talks on Drugs, First Aid etc. This virtual pilot has found that the premises are inadequate. The main room and the office are both too small. Our very active Police Sager neighbourhood Panel is already too big to be accommodated and our wish to teach our Norbiteens basic skills such as baking cannot be done with this facility as it exists

Key Learning Points from Pilot:

  • The existing premises are too small and inadequately equipped
  • We have looked for but cannot find an affordable alternative e.g.

(a) Old Laundry. Our assessment is that a sum of approximately £70,000 was needed to bring the building up to the standard required for occupation for community use.  See survey report attached

In order to occupy a building, a lease would be required, which would need to be agreed by the Council’s Policy and Resources Committee.  In addition to the requirements set out above, any lease would be subject to the Council’s standard terms and conditions, including duration of lease, break clauses and repairing obligations

(b) Surrey Sports Centre premises (originally built as an underground car park and since the boxing club closed, have not now been in use for around 10 years RBK’s Property team suggest an extensive refit would be required to bring the premises up to the required standard for community use, such as, for example, potential rewiring, upgrades to services and utilities, and general fit out costs, including the renewal of partition walls, which are not compliant with current fire safety provisions for occupancy of premises of this type.  We, therefore, expect the initial costs of bringing these premises back to a fit standard for occupation to be considerable. Perhaps as much as £350k

Detailed Project Description

Business Activities

Although this project will seek income-generating ventures, it can be afforded within our existing grant for three years after this it will require on-going funding via new grants or enterprises.

Community and Educational Activities

The project will encourage young people to engage with a range of community and educational activities including:

  • Practical work to improve the living environment in the Norbiton area such as creating a mural in the local play area in conjunction with younger children, painting fences and litter picking.  (Some of this work is likely to be done in conjunction with Axis, the company that has the maintenance contract for the Cambridge Estate, with whom we are already in discussions)
  • Intergenerational engagement such as supporting older people to participate in organised events such as bingo days, helping at the Madingley Green Fair and oral history collection – linking educational activities to real life experience of local people
  • Business skills development sessions
  • Life skills sessions

Working with identified community priorities, the young people will be involved in generating further ideas and plans for new activities.

There may be some overlap between Business and Community activities – some community activities may generate income even though that income may not fully cover costs.

Governance and Management

One Norbiton has been a pilot therefore working out the best structure to manage this form of Localism is part of its brief.  At present its membership is determined by geography and all those who live work or study in the ward are automatically equal members without subscriptions etc. The Community Working Group, which meets monthly is the sovereign body via a participatory democratic process. It has set up a company limited by guarantee, called One Norbiton to handle its grants and other financial affairs. The directors of this company have to be endorsed by vote at an annual general meeting of the membership in order to carry on in office. Two signatories are required to sign cheques and only appointed officers are authorised to issue invoices. Accounts have to pass Inland Revenue and Companies House standards. They are also independently checked by Mr Robert Markless and will be open for on-going examination on-line. This structure should ideally have separate officers acting for the company to those of the CWG but as there are so few volunteers prepared to take on the burden of One Norbiton, by default currently the same officers are serving in two capacities and relying on transparency to offset conflicts of interest. We are hoping this may change in the future.

Management and Supervision

Overall responsibility for the financial aspects of this project rests with the Directors of One Norbiton with the steering committee reporting at regular intervals to the CWG.

The day-to-day management and supervision of the project will be by the named Project Lead:

The project Lead:  Jill Preston

She will chair a committee, which will have representation from:

RBK Housing: Simon Godfrey

ESET: Denise Parry

Police Group: Elaine Kennedy,

Other Community Groups: One Norbiton including the Norbiteens, CREst, CRERA Computer Club , Community Connected, Superhighways, Safer Neighbourhood, Age Concern, Surrey Save, CAB, Kutlets, AFC,  Mind, RISE, Food Bank, Community Furniture Project, CaP ( Christians against Poverty) and Save the World.

PROJECT STEERING COMMITTEE

A committee will be invited composed of all these interested parties (a couple of who were involved with CAP) together any others who are likely to become future participants in running the Hub. This will be chaired by Jill Preston and meet periodically to supervise the works and later act as an on-going supervisory body for the Hub.

Hilary Garner, Denise Parry and Mary Graham will be asked to comment on what we might learn from the CAP experience.

Insurance

Rent & Rates: Peppercorn offered Term to be agreed

Other Legal Issues

 

Running Costs

These will partly depend on the lease agreement we have with RBK Housing. The supervision of the Hub will be shared with all partners.

.

Equality and Diversity

The project is committed to equality and diversity and aims to offer opportunities to all people.  The Project Lead is responsible for ensuring the One Norbiton Equality and Diversity policy is followed.

Data Protection

The project will be holding a range of data relating to its participants, including names, addresses, ages, what hours they have volunteered, what activities they have taken part in, what changes (outcomes) have happened for them, and (where relevant) notes on disciplinary matters.

One Norbiton as the responsible agency for the project must therefore adhere to Data Protection law.  One Norbiton:

  • Is registered as a ‘data controller’
  • Has a data protection policy and procedures (see Appendix 2)

As a project of One Norbiton, this Hub will abide by One Norbiton policy and procedures.

The Project Lead has delegated responsibility.

As the work carried out in the Hub is in direct pursuit of One Norbiton’s objects, any trading element of it is classified as primary purpose trading.  We are mindful that should we take on elements of non-primary purpose trading, such trading is strictly limited / taxable
