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 5pm on Friday 27 August 2021.
