Charities can apply for grants

Small charities in Newham are urged to apply for funding as part of the Mayor of London’s volunteering initiative.

Organisations who place young and disadvantaged people in volunteering positions can apply, as well as charities who provide local volunteering opportunities.

The Team London initiative is built on the success of volunteers during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “London’s army of amazing volunteers provide tremendous benefits to our city, giving people great satisfaction in helping others.

“I urge charities to bid for this cash and help us provide even more volunteering opportunities especially for young Londoners.”

Now in its third year, it will see at least ten charities benefit from grants of up to £10,000.

Last year’s scheme saw Newham-based sports forum Pro-Active East London awarded money.

Charities can apply by visiting volunteerteam.london.gov.uk
