  • Voluntary Action Fund - Volunteering Support Fund

    Created: 12/04/2018

    Grants of between £7,500 and £10,000 are now available to small to medium-sized organisations to support volunteers. Support is available for individual organisations, who will be expected to recruit at least 15 additional volunteers, including, 10 who experience disadvantage or would traditionally experience barriers to volunteering; and provide opportunities for both current and new volunteers to benefit from a meaningful volunteering experience, eg through training, learning new skills, and increased participation in their local community. Applications should contribute towards the following outcomes: increasing the diversity of the third sector’s volunteer pool, especially to include those who experience disadvantage or would traditionally experience barriers to volunteering; improving opportunities for skills and personal development through volunteering; improving the third sector’s capacity to support, train and deploy volunteers; and enhancing the services organisations deliver to better meet the needs of the communities they serve.

    The deadline for applications is 04 May 2018.
