Voluntary Action Coventry has launched the VSquad. A team of young people from all backgrounds and areas of Coventry who engage in volunteering in order to make a difference in their community. This may be through 1-2-1 volunteering within existing organisations or as a team tackling issues important to them through action day based volunteering. The VSquad is being supported through grants made by Big Lottery Fund Awards for All and the National Express Foundation.

The project will be led by the team of young people from Coventry with support from the Volunteering Services team. They have the opportunity to decide what challenges or volunteering they would like to get involved in, whether it is a pop-up charity shop, clearing a local waterway, helping out at a local charity event or developing and painting a mural, the challenges will be diverse and fun. The team will support young people to design the project and may even be able to give them a small grant to get their project or action day off the ground.

As part of their volunteering they will have the chance to undertake either the ASDAN short course qualification or the Volunteering at an event certificate. This will offer members of the VSquad a formal certificate to take into a working environment.

The VSquad will be getting together once a month to discuss upcoming events or to shape the project. If you would like to sign up to hear more about the VSquad then please email volunteering@vacoventry.org.uk or contact Lucy or Becci on 024 7622 0381.

This project is funded through National Express Foundation and Awards for All England.
