  • Volunteering Support Fund 2021-24

    Created: 09/07/2021

    The Scottish Government’s Volunteering Support Fund is now open for applications. The £3.3 million Fund will be delivered on its behalf by Impact Funding Partners over the next 3 years. Organisations can apply for up to £30,000 to March 2024.

    The fund is geared towards organisations in Scotland with an annual income of under £250,000. It will enable Scotland’s small to medium-sized third sector organisations to recruit additional volunteers who will contribute towards delivering a new volunteering project, or extending/expanding an existing one, and improve how volunteers are supported in their role.

    The fund will support organisations to deliver on four key outcomes:

    • Increase diversity in the third sector’s volunteer pool, to particularly include people who experience disadvantage or would traditionally experience barriers to volunteering.
    • Improve governance, leadership and financial knowledge of organisations through the recruitment of skilled volunteers to enhance the third sector's capacity.
    • Improve organisational capacity to provide opportunities for skills and personal development through volunteering.
    • Enhance services delivered by organisations to better meet the needs of the communities they serve.

    A full overview of the fund plus information on how to apply can be found on Impact Funding Partners website.

    The fund closes for applications at 17:00 on Friday 27 August.

    Decisions are expected to be made by Friday 29 October and successful applicants will be informed the following week.
