Access to Volunteering: closing date for second round of funding
The second Access to Volunteering fund grant round closes on 8 February 2010
The £2million fund aims to increase the number of disabled people volunteering through giving grant funding to volunteer-involving organisations. It is currently piloting in three areas: London, the West Midlands and the North West. The fund operates between Autumn 2009 and Spring 2011 over five grant rounds.
Volunteer-involving organisations can apply to fund projects that overcome the physical, psychological and attitudinal barriers to disabled people volunteering.
Applications can be made online or by post. Any organisations unable to submit an application by 8 February will have their applications considered in future grant rounds.
