Bursaries fund for volunteer managers

Office of the Third Sector will provide money for training and best practice work

The Office of the Third Sector has announced that £1m in bursaries for volunteer managers will be available from April next year.

The bursary fund is the latest part of the OTS's £3m volunteer management fund, announced in May, which will be made available to charities and volunteering organisations.

The £1m fund will support training for volunteer managers who coordinate day-to-day volunteering activities as well as for people involved in volunteer management strategy.

Infrastructure body Capacitybuilders, which is distributing grants from the fund, has invited expressions of interest.

Angela Smith, Minister for the Third Sector, said: "This programme will enable volunteer managers to be better connected to existing support, share knowledge effectively and raise awareness of the benefits of good volunteer management."
