Jersey Cheshire Home is running a raffle for a stylish new Audi A1 car and wants to give AJC members a chance to win. Only 5,000 tickets each costing 10 pounds are being printed and the winner will be drawn out on 9 December at the Jacksons CI World of Luxury event at their St Peter showroom.

The profits will be going to support the just launched Big Build 2017 project which will create an increased number of rooms at Jersey Cheshire Home to accommodate more residents.

It will also improve many of the existing bedrooms and provide much needed new and expanded facilities for residents, staff and the 400 plus regular monthly users of the home’s amenities.

The home, which caters for the needs of some of the Island’s most severely disabled residents, is the only facility of its type in Jersey.

Community and Constitutional Affairs (CCA) is now accepting short-term grant applications for projects that meet the objectives of the Building a Safer Society (BaSS) strategy.

Funding for work related to the strategy was agreed by the States Assembly in 2000, and since then, seed money has been provided to various initiatives, which are periodically reviewed to assess how well they are performing against the BaSS objectives.

Following the latest review of current projects, it was decided that there was scope within the existing BaSS funds to accept applications for new initiatives.

The Home Affairs Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore, said: “We are very pleased with and proud of the successes so far and we look forward to working with new partners to deliver initiatives that serve the ideas behind BaSS, such as early intervention, diversion, harm reduction and initiatives that reduce the chances of re-offending. This strategy also meets the Council of Ministers’ priority to reform the way that the public sector works.”

Over the past ten years, the BaSS strategy has funded some innovative and successful approaches to community safety, with ongoing monitoring and annual reports helping to track progress. BaSS works in partnership with different agencies in both the public and private sectors, as well as in the voluntary and community sector (VCS), to ensure value for money and the delivery of effective services to our community.
