  • Scottish Government announces 3.8 million for volunteering projects

    Created: 21/06/2017

    The Volunteering Support Fund will be made available over the next four years to create new and better volunteering projects with a focus on encouraging disadvantaged and disabled people into volunteering.

    Communities Secretary Angela Constance said:
    “We want to make sure we are able to tap into everybody’s talents and support anybody who wants to volunteer to do so. Through offering this funding on a three year rolling basis, we are providing further financial certainty to support volunteers.”

    The fund will be managed by the Voluntary Action Fund during 2017-2018.

    The deadline for applications is 5.00pm on Friday 14 July 2017. More information can be found by clicking here
