Local interest in volunteering is increasing and so is demand from organisations that want to include volunteers – so we are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a £106,000 grant from City Bridge Trust.
As the City of London Corporation’s charity, City Bridge Trust awards grants to tackle disadvantage across the capital. The money will fund a project to increase the quantity and quality of volunteering placements in the borough.
Volunteering can build the practical skills and confidence needed by people who are looking for work or returning to the job market after time away through ill-health or life events. Running over two years, this grant will enable us to deliver more training and a tailored service both for individuals who want to volunteer and local organisation that are looking to include volunteers successfully.
Find your own volunteer role today through V Connect or call us to make an appointment with one of our Signposters – 020 8317 3817.
