Volunteers’ Week Activity Fund

Published date: 
Tuesday, 9th April 2019

Volunteers’ Week 1 – 7 June is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make.  During the week, hundreds of events and celebrations take place across the country, saying thank you to volunteers and recognising their invaluable and diverse contribution to the UK. 

Action Together is inviting local VCFSE groups across Oldham, Tameside and Rochdale to apply for one of our Volunteers’ Week Activity Fund Grants to support an activity during June 2019.

When thanking your volunteers, take a moment to remember each and every one of them. From trustees and campaigners to carers and fundraisers, this is a great time to think about the fantastic contribution all your volunteers make.

It’s also a chance to think about what volunteering means to you. How can you celebrate people from every walk of life who are getting involved in volunteering? It might also be an opportunity to recruit new volunteers within your organisation.

Grants of up to £500 are available and applications need to include one or more of the following priorities:


Involving new volunteers to help run your group or support your organisation, which are inclusive and flexible to meet the diverse communities across Oldham, Tameside and Rochdale.


Creating opportunities for your volunteers to feel connected, valued and supported.


Celebrating your volunteers, their achievements, and the difference they make within communities across Oldham and Tameside.

Closing Date for Oldham and Tameside: 12 noon Friday 10 May 2019

Decision date: 17 May 2019
