Lloyds Bank Foundation Enable Funding allowed us to test out a supported volunteering programme (VSquad Plus) that is now partly funded through the Accelerate programme.
We are a small, specialist partner helping Accelerate clients access volunteering opportunities aimed at building confidence, increasing motivation and developing the skills of participants. We also provide work readiness training and accredited volunteering qualifications.
VSquad Plus was developed following input from a range of organisations working with long term unemployed clients aged 25 plus who have additional support needs. Consultants FD Associates were appointed to report on the project and their findings from the first programme (January 2016) is now available. Read the full report.
