Innovation in Giving Fund Volunteer Centre Programme

In 2013 eight volunteer centres, including Lincolnshire, were awarded with coaching and funding of up to £50,000 through the Cabinet Office Innovation in Giving Fund, for the period April to December 2013.

The funding supported them to develop and grow innovations in their work over the course of a year, aiming to support them to develop and test new approaches to increasing volunteering and for the centres to work in new ways.

Working with Nesta, who managed the Cabinet Office fund, the Institute for Volunteering Research followed the volunteer centres during this period to record their experiences and learn from their good practice.
