Cash for training

Money by RachelhHow many of you out there have started your own group – whether it be a parents group or a self help group which is volunteer led and maybe volunteer run. Do you have a volunteer manager?  And if you do have one do they feel confident in the role?

Great news is that there is now money available for a Volunteer Management Programme.  It’s a bursary scheme worth £1m to support volunteer management skills development.  This means that people can apply from today, Monday 22 March 2010 for individual bursaries of up to £1950. You better get in there quick because I think the demand will be enormous.

Sound interesting? Well, here’s more information from the people holding the purse strings.
