CTSI is funded by the Scottish Government to support the volunteering and the wider voluntary sector in Clackmannanshire. Although CTSI does not have grants to directly fund people or organisations, there are numerous organisations in Scotland and the UK that do distribute grants and here are some links to a number of them.
Support for volunteering for the Commonwealth Games
The Legacy 2014 Volunteer Support Programme has £500k to offer financial assistance to volunteers who might otherwise not apply. The BIG Lottery Fund in Scotland yesterday
announced that the programme will be available for Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games volunteers to help them meet the costs of travel from outside Glasgow and additional
/ support for those who are disabled, respite for carers, childcare, accommodation and subsistence. Applications for Glasgow 2014 volunteering opportunities open next Monday,
January 14, when the search launches to recruit up to 15,000 friendly people who will play a crucial role in the success of the Games.
