Within the first phase, Burnett Works is developing a cold recruitment pack which will be tested over the coming months with the aim of establishing a new banker pack. The initial concept will be ‘Let me show you the difference between disability and livability.’ A second concept will be tested against this in early 2009.Livability Director of Fundraising and Marketing John Chamberlain commented, “With the new brand identity developed in the spring, it is now important to highlight the need for funds and how they will be used in our work with disabled people. Creating new propositions and finding new ways to recruit more donors is a key part of our strategy of the next two years as we seek to build the database.”– ends –Notes to editors:Livability believes everyone should have the freedom to live their lives and have the chance to use their abilities. The charity offers a wide range of innovative services to support and empower disabled people throughout their lives and also provides community organisations with the resources, advice and confidence to impact their neighbourhoods.

The application site will open Wednesday at 8 a.m. at https://workforce.lacounty.gov/.About 25% of awards will be reserved for social enterprises that demonstrate a need and ability to serve vulnerable populations. Priority will also be given to businesses in unincorporated areas of the county.Supervisor Hilda Solis said an unprecedented response is required.“Los Angeles County will assist our most burdened businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis with the launch of our Employer Assistance Grant Fund,” Solis said. “This innovative state-funded program will help our local businesses, including nonprofits and social enterprises that serve our communities’ most vulnerable individuals. This unprecedented global pandemic requires an unprecedented response, and L.A. County stands ready to offer relief to our small businesses.”In order to qualify, businesses must:— be a for-profit corporation, partnership, or nonprofit with a for- profit activity in Los Angeles County;— have between two and 50 full-time employees;— have less than $2 million in gross receipts or annual revenue;— have been established on or before Dec. 4, 2019;— be able to produce tax returns; and— demonstrate significant economic hardship as a result of COVID-19. Businesses that have demonstrated evidence of a loss of revenue of at least 20% will have met this burden.Businesses can use the money to:— pay mortgages, rent or utilities;— cover working capital costs;— pay for inventory;— bridge funding to other lenders, such as Small Business Administration Payroll Protection; and— pay down other debt incurred before the covered period.The grants may not be used to pay outstanding taxes, legal judgments, employee payroll or benefits or for lobbying.The WDACS acting director, Otto Solorzano, thanked state officials for making monies available for the fund, which he said would be the first of its kind in California.“Thank you to Gov. (Gavin) Newsom and (the California Employment Development Department) for providing this critical funding for L.A. County’s businesses, and to the Board of Supervisors for their support of this essential program,” Solorzano said. “The Employer Assistance Grant Fund will provide some of our local businesses with desperately needed capital at a critical time, allowing them to retain workers and remain in business.” More Cool Stuff Subscribe EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS 55 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it

The club announced on Tuesday that assistant boss Culverhouse and head of football operations Karsa had been suspended pending an internal investigation. Although manager Paul Lambert has not shed any further light on the reason for the suspensions, he made no attempt to hide what a difficult week it has been for him. Press Association Lambert declared it a huge point, and Albrighton said: ” Just to stop the rot of the defeats was massively important and we’ve done that. “We worked hard for each other, there was a great atmosphere around the place and it was a successful day I think. I can’t remember one point where it felt negative. “In the second half we came out of the blocks and we worked hard and we had the Holte End behind us. “Southampton will always play a possession game, they kept the ball well and we did struggle to get near them, but second half we took the game to them and created some good chances.” The point inched Villa closer to safety, now five points clear of the relegation zone with four games left to play. Southampton have never needed to concern themselves with the bottom of the table but they are in danger of ending the season with a whimper. Saints have won only one of their last five matches and have failed to score in the two games since losing England striker Jay Rodriguez to a serious knee injury. Manager Mauricio Pochettino is content with their overall form and thinks nothing that happens now can take the shine off his side’s fine campaign. The Argentinian said: “We’re playing really well but we need to be more clinical in front of goal. That’s what we’ve been lacking these last few games. “We’re frustrated because we haven’t got the results we would have wanted but at the same time we’re pleasantly surprised and very happy with the team’s performance because it seems like we’re a team that’s actually playing to get into the Champions League. “We’ve already achieved quite a high grade, we’ve done really well throughout the season, taking into account all the problems we’ve had on and off the pitch. “Of course it would be great to finish the season on a high note, but if you analyse it, we’ve had a fantastic season.” It at least ended on something of a high note as Villa brought to an end a run of four straight Barclays Premier League defeats with a 0-0 draw at home to Southampton. Lambert was assisted by youth coach Gordon Cowans, who won the European Cup as a player with Villa, and out-of-favour goalkeeper Shay Given. Both have been promoted to the first-team coaching team on a temporary basis, and winger Albrighton noticed a positive difference in training. He said: ” Maybe for the manager (it’s been harder) because it’s his close pals but for the players it’s been business as usual. “We’re footballers, we get paid to play, and that’s what we do. Every day we go in, train hard and come Saturday we’ll cross that white line and it’s like nothing’s happened. You just get on with it. “Training’s probably been better if anything. There’s been a bit of a buzz, it’s been lively, the tempo’s been high and it’s been very good. We had a very sharp session here (on Friday) and we took that into the game.” It looked like being another disappointing afternoon at Villa Park as Southampton dominated the early stages but the hosts improved and had the better of the chances in the second half, with Albrighton central to their threat. Jeers have often accompanied Villa’s home struggles but there were none to be heard on Saturday as the fans stayed firmly behind their team. Marc Albrighton insists Aston Villa have not been adversely affected by the suspensions of Ian Culverhouse and Gary Karsa.
