Partnership Funding for the VCS

VCS Community

Partnership funding

The HBBC/VCS Partnership Commissioning is unique to Leicestershire.   It has been developed over the past 7 years by the VCS for the VCS. The funding streams are inclusive through various Partnership funding programmes, offering small community groups, larger organisations and most recently volunteering, funding opportunities and a chance to highlight/develop their work, sustain successful projects, enabling positive or often life changing outcomes to people across our Borough. 

The Partnership particularly encourages collaborative approaches enabling a greater understanding of the collective offer of both the VCS Sector and the Statutory Sector.

Community Volunteers Fund (CVF)

We are delighted to launch once again our new ‘Making a Difference’ Community Volunteers Fund to support Volunteers within the Borough of Hinckley & Bosworth.

This fund is to recognise the invaluable work being delivered by volunteers across our Borough, and the significant impact this has on improving the quality of life for people within our communities.

The Borough Council, through the HBBC/VCS Partnership, has made available a further £5,000 for the period 2019/20

The fund is specifically for small groups of volunteers or individuals to support volunteering activities with applications of up to £250.  

We welcome applications from all Volunteers, including those who are working within new or established volunteer groups or within organisations.

Please email for an application form.
