Finalists for the Bevan Prize award for Health & Wellbing - 2014

Finalists for the Bevan Prize award for Health & Wellbing - 2014

15 July 2014

Nominated earlier in 2014 by Paul Blomfield MP for the Bevan Prize for Health and Wellbeing 2014.  MCDT’s CEO Debbie Mathews and six members from the health team attended The Bevan Foundation Award Ceremony that took place at Portcullis House in Westminster London.

Up against tough competition Manor & Castle Development Trust managed to make it to the final four finalists. Though we did not win the main award it was good for the organisation and all the staff to be recognised for the outstanding contribution to the advancement of health and wellbeing in the Manor and Castle area of Sheffield.

Debbie Mathews, CEO of Manor and Castle Development comment “We were delighted to have been nominated by Paul for this prestigious award and very proud and excited to have been shortlisted. At the heart of what we do and believe is supporting people who have faced challenges in their lives to take control of their choices and destiny. Good health is so important in every other aspect of our lives – work, leisure, relationships. We work closely with our NHS colleagues to make sure together we achieve the best outcomes for individuals, families and our communities.”

Paul Blomfield MP stated “I’ve worked closely with Manor and Castle Development Trust and have seen the impact they’re having on improving the lives of people, young and old, in my constituency. Making the final shortlist for the Bevan Prize is a huge achievement and shows how their work to improve people’s health and wellbeing is recognised nationally.”

Quadrant open for Business

Quadrant open for Business

The Trust board recognised the long term nature of the work and as long ago as 1998 started to consider the need for an independent source of income that could assure the sustainability of the Trust itself beyond SRB and maintain its capacity to deliver.

 
It was the pioneering spirit of the Trust plus its capacity for innovation and creativity that led to the birth of what is now known as the Quadrant. The project satisfied three key aims :
 
  • To begin the process of regenerating the former Parkway Wholesale Markets site and act as a catalyst for the development of Parkway Business Park, identified by Objective 2 as a Strategic Economic Zone.
  • To provide SMEs with much needed high quality managed workspace within which growth would be encouraged and supported ( research carried out for Objective 1 had identified a gap in the South Yorkshire market for high quality accommodation that would meet the needs of the high growth, high technological companies and for “grow on” space that would free up incubator units).
  • To provide MCDT with an asset that would provide a long term income stream to ensure the community regeneration activity continued beyond the current grant regimes.

The South Sheffield Partnership was constituted

The South Sheffield Partnership was constituted

The South Sheffield Partnership was a vehicle for community regeneration which brought together ten neighbourhood forums from across South Sheffield.  In addition the  Partnership also included the BME cluster, which is a cluster of small organisations building the foundations for black and ethnic minority grassroots organisations

Over the previous seven years before The South Sheffield Partnership, the forums were supported through the Single Regeneration Budget.  At at the end of the SRB period they were then brought together under the Partnership as the key funders preferred to deal with one big organisation rather than through small individual organisations.  Manor & Castle Development Trust was the accountable body and took on the responsibility of leading the Partnership and bringing the forums together.

The South Sheffield Partnership was constituted in 2002.  It had a community executive board which comprised of representatives from each of the ten forums plus a representative from the cluster.  It was funded to run over seven years and the money came principally from Yorkshire Forward and Objective 1.
