Funding to support Volunteers

Voluntary Action Fund – Volunteering Support Grant (deadline 14 July 2017)

Grants of between £7,500 and £10,000 are now available to small to medium-sized organisations to support volunteers. The Volunteering Support Fund supports organisations to recruit additional volunteers and improve how volunteers are supported in their role. 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.
