Volunteering grants are still available …but not for long

Volunteering grants are still available …but not for long

Volunteering grants worth a total of £25,000 are still available to community groups in South Oxfordshire, but time is running out to apply for them.

The grant scheme was prompted by voluntary groups telling us that one of the biggest obstacles they face when trying to attract volunteers is finding money to meet training, transport and insurance costs.
In August we launched a pilot volunteering grant scheme to help voluntary and community groups find the volunteers they need.

Volunteering grants of between £250 to £750 are available to help cover costs. The scheme will close to applications in January 2019 so don't delay, apply today.

To find out more about the grant, eligibility and how to apply please see www.southoxon.gov.uk/volunteering
