Steven Lynn our Community Link Champion says: “what a great opportunity for retired police officers like me to invest time voluntarily back into communities they have served for years as police officers. We have so much to offer and it so often gets lost when we retire. This project provides lots of different ways to support local communities with the help they need.”
Voluntary Action North East Lincolnshire (VANEL) manages the North East Lincolnshire Volunteering Development Service identifies volunteering opportunities for local people; trains and develops volunteers and voluntary groups; places people into volunteering options they can create themselves; helps people and groups find funding to support their work and much more.
Paula Grant, VANEL Chief Officer says: “we are delighted to have secured Big Lottery Fund monies to invest in a professional development programme of direct benefit to voluntary groups and wider communities we support. This will give us an excellent opportunity to build even stronger working relationships with both volunteers and voluntary groups that we support across our area.”
WRAP is happy to announce Round 2 of the Litter Innovation Fund (LIF). A £450,000 programme, funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG).
