FUNDING: telephone befriending grants

FUNDING: telephone befriending grants
13th January 2021 c360admin

Having secured funding from the Ministry of Justice and Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS), Volunteering Matters is looking for expressions of interest from organisations to deliver a telephone befriending service to individuals currently serving their sentences in the community either on a community sentence order or on a period of license. Volunteers would support the most vulnerable via telephone calls to help those feeling isolated during the pandemic. There’s a range of areas across England which need cover. Telephones will be supplied by HMPPS. The grant funding for this project is up to £15,000 for five months. Contact debbie.easterbrook@volunteeringmatters.org.uk for more information.
