Help for volunteer-led groups

 

Hackney Council is launching Volunteering for Hackney, a new scheme to help small community-based volunteer-led groups in Hackney. The aim of the scheme is to support frontline and grassroots community groups relying on volunteers (minimum 10 volunteers, no staff or maximum of one paid staff, income of less than £5,000/year) to sustain and grow.

 

If successful, groups will receive:

  • Potential grants of up to £1,000

  • Help with fundraising

  • Free meeting rooms

  • Help with social media and communications

  • Promotion of their activities through Council channels

  • Free training on topics such as recruiting and retaining volunteers, safeguarding etc.

  • Help on how to make volunteering more inclusive

  • Support to explore the wider social benefits of their activities with volunteers

  • Help to break down barriers they may be experiencing either across the Council or elsewhere

  • Membership of a new and exciting high profile project network in Hackney.

 

Any questions, please email: agnes.gautier@hackney.gov.uk
