As part of the Year of the Volunteer 2018 campaign, Sefton Council and Sefton CVS have teamed up with Sefton 4 Good to launch a special grant initiative specifically aimed at groups and organisations who work with volunteers.
Following on from the huge success of the Year of the Coast, the tireless work of Sefton’s thousands of volunteers will be celebrated in a yearlong campaign to raise awareness of how much volunteers do for the borough.
Sefton 4 Good have launched an online crowdfunding appeal to raise funds for a dedicated grants initiative called Volunteering 4 Good. The initiative has been given a kickstart from Sefton 4 Good funds and Sefton MBC’s Transition Fund, and the more money we raise through crowdfunding means that more groups and organisations will benefit for this year-long initiative.
The Volunteering 4 Good grants will be open to groups later this year with the aim of developing local volunteer-involving projects, and we hope to raise funds to increase the amount of money available to Sefton groups.
