The Volunteering Support Fund

The Volunteering Support Fund is funded by the Scottish Government, which has committed a total of £3.3 million over the funding period 1 July 2018 - 31 March 2021 to improve support for volunteers, and is managed by Voluntary Action Fund. Since 2013 over 450 organisations have benefitted from the Volunteering Support Fund, resulting in improved support for thousands of volunteers, more than half of whom had experienced disadvantage.

Grants between £7,500 and £10,000 per annum are 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.

The deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 4 May 2018.
