At the special meeting of the Voluntary and Community Sector grants committee held on 12th December it was agreed to extend current grants from the VCS Grants Fund and the Advice Fund for one year to 31 March 2016. Check out the full report.

Over the coming months the Council will be consulting with the voluntary sector about how it can work with the sector to develop greater resilience including securing more external income, reducing costs and strengthening key skills.

Mike Sherriff, Chief Executive of Voluntary Action Islington said “ At a time when resources are getting less, we welcome this decision, which provides local voluntary organisations with some certainty to plan for the future”
