Charity and Voluntary Sector
Cabinet Office: The Government has announced £1.5m to support third sector regional networks in delivering many of the Government's policies and programmes at the regional level. The Office of the Third Sector will provide £1m over two years, whilst Capacitybuilders has identified a further £500,000 for 2009-10.
Currently funding is delivered through the Regional Infrastructure Programme, established in 2005 for three years. From April 2009 Capacitybuilders will be delivering the fund. Over the coming months they will work with the networks and other stakeholders to shape the investment for the next year.
