Voluntary Action Fund (VAF) has announced the launch of its Volunteering Support Fund 2017-18.
Small to medium-sized third sector organisations working in Scotland, with an annual income of under £250,000, can apply for grants of £7,500 – £10,000 through the Volunteering Support Fund.
Organisations can apply for the costs of recruiting additional volunteers (both delivery volunteers and voluntary board members) and should demonstrate that they aim to recruit at least an additional 10 volunteers, including 6 who experience disadvantage.
Other costs should contribute towards how volunteers are supported, eg. increased staff hours, volunteers’ expenses, volunteer training, establishing robust volunteering policies and procedures, volunteer planning or evaluation days, thank-you events, uniforms or equipment.
Applications should be submitted by 5pm on Friday 14th July.
