CVS Inverclyde is on the hunt for young volunteers aged between 12 and 25 years who are keen to make a difference to youth volunteering in the area, as it forges ahead with its new Inverclyde Youth Action (IYA) project.
They will join forces as a youth subgroup to feed into IYA, which aims to increase access to more quality volunteering opportunities for young people that can help spark a change in their lives.
CVS Inverclyde has been awarded £8,500 for its new Inverclyde Youth Action (IYA) project from the Year of Young People 2018 National Lottery Fund. The Fund supports initiatives aimed at inspiring young people to lead active lives and encourage positive mental health.
Finalists have been announced for Reach for the Stars – the Inverclyde Community Awards 2018. Run by CVS Inverclyde, the awards will see voluntary organisations and volunteers recognised and rewarded for their contribution to the local community.
... hears Council's plans for participatory budgeting
Delegates heard about Inverclyde Council's plans to distribute at least £350,000 across Inverclyde through a participatory budgeting process, as part of CVS Inverclyde's third sector conference, Aspiring Communities. The annual community conference at the Beacon Arts Centre (today Fri 7 Sept '18), attracted representatives across the sectors.
