Volunteer Celebration Fund – Oldham

In June 2021, Action Together launched the Volunteer Celebration Fund for voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups across Oldham to apply for up to £500 to support an activity to recruit, retain, reconnect or reward volunteers during 2021:

  • Recruit - Involving new volunteers to help run your group or support your organisation, which are inclusive and flexible to meet the diverse communities across Oldham.
  • Retain - Creating opportunities for your volunteers to feel connected, valued and supported.
  • Reconnect - Creating opportunities to reconnect with your volunteers who have been unable to actively volunteer during the COVID-19 Pandemic
  • Reward - Celebrating your volunteers, their achievements, and the difference they make within communities across Oldham – particularly during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

We are delighted to announce that we were able to fund 44 groups distributing £19,811.33 to voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups across Oldham.

See below the groups that have been awarded the fund and the difference it made to the Borough.
