Voluntary Action Fund (VAF) is delighted to announce the launch of its Volunteering Support Fund 2017-18.

Small to medium-sized third sector organisations working Scotland, with an annual income of under £250,000 can apply for grants of between £7,500 and £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/evaluation days or thank-you events, or uniforms or equipment.

Applications should be submitted by 5pm on Fri 14 July 2017.

Please forward this information to people within your networks who may be interested in this new fund and feel free to upload the information onto your website, include the details in your newsletter and/or post on your social media pages as appropriate.

With best wishes
