Keep Our Voluntary Sector Grants

Reverse the decision made on March 1st 2016 by East Staffordshire Borough Council to cut the Voluntary Services Grant Scheme

Why is this important?

The volunteer Services Grants scheme enables many charities and voluntary organizations to keep going locally to provide essential services for those who are in need of it. Between 30-40 local charities and voluntary organisations will loose the chance to bid for the £366,000 funding to pay for essential costs.

Youth services, homeless support and elderly support will diminish and 20 organizations have said that their charitable activities will half and are at risk of disappearing entirely.

We need to now stand up for our charities that have given us all a safety net if the worst should happen and sound assistance when us or are loved ones need help.
