Volunteer Centres


A survey of Volunteer Centres in England, conducted jointly by Volunteering England and NAVCA in partnership with the Institute for Volunteering Research, has found that 52 per cent that receive funding from the local authority had it cut in the past year.  Some had experienced cuts of up to 80 per cent and half of those losing funding had lost at least a fifth of local authority funding. The average cut was 25 per cent. These results follow on from the finding of the Annual Return of Volunteer Centres for 2010/11 which found that funding from local government across the network declined on average by 12 per cent between 2009-10 and 2010-11.
