£1.1 million available to support volunteer-involving Organisations

New fund open to applications

The Voluntary Action Fund (VAF) has announced a new round of funding to help third sector organisations create new or enhanced volunteering projects. The Volunteering Support Grant 2016-17 will enable organisations to increase the diversity of their volunteer pool over an 11 month period.

Grants of up to £10,000 are available for individual organisations, which will be expected to recruit at least 15 additional volunteers (especially those who are disadvantaged in some way); 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.
