Passionate about the voluntary sector in Wales? Looking to make a real difference? Join the Volunteering Wales Project Board today!

This board is responsible for making decisions about how £1.3million of Welsh Government funding is spent supporting volunteering in Wales.

The board has already taken the decision this year to;

1.Fund 49 exciting new volunteer projects in Wales, 14 of which are focusing on getting young people aged 14 - 25 to volunteer (find out more here)
2.Fund 19 youth led grant panels who will fund youth led social action and volunteering in their local areas (find out more here)
3.Have an evaluation carried out on the way the grants are run and what impact they are making in Wales
4.Listen to what young people are saying about youth volunteering in Wales and have started to work towards developing projects that help improve volunteering for young people in Wales
5.Fund training for some young people to help them to become young trustees

The board would like to recruit up to 3 new members to work with the board to ensure the funded projects, evaluation, youth engagement and funded training is successful and also to be part of decisions around how funding is distributed in the future.
