Three new reports on partnership working between faith and local government.

Mayor urges local charities to bid for volunteering cash

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson is calling on charities across the capital to apply for new funding as part of his drive to boost volunteering.

Team London, the Mayor’s citywide volunteering initiative, today launched its small grants 2014 programme to coincide with Volunteering Week: this week, 1– 7 June.

At least 10 charities will benefit from the grants, which are worth up to £10,000 each.

This year, applications are open to those that help place young people and those from hard-to-reach groups in volunteering positions, as well as charities that provide local volunteering opportunities for the wider community.

Team London wants to build on the success of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and get as many Londoners as possible involved in volunteering across the capital.
