Brilliant news – over 130 volunteers have been able to donate more time to local charities thanks to South Oxfordshire District Council’s volunteering grant. An extra 5000 hours of volunteering time. Fantastic!
To date, more than £14,000 has been distributed to local sports and community groups by the council as part of its pilot volunteering grant project but they don’t have to be the only ones – there is still time for other local groups to apply.
Do you need more training for your volunteers?
Do you already have sport coaches that need additional training?
Do your new volunteers need DBS checks?

Come and take a look at the volunteering grant scheme. Just one hour of application time, help available.
