South West Peak Welcomes New Grant Panel Volunteer

Posted on 22 August 2018


The South West Peak Engaging Communities team, hosted by Support Staffordshire, has welcomed a new volunteer to their ranks. Pam (second from the left on the photo) has become the eighth member of the Grant Panel team of volunteers whose role it is to decide which projects should be allocated funding from the South West Peak Community Grants Scheme. 

Sally Bentley, Community Grants Officer, said ‘We are delighted to welcome Pam to our group and are always looking for more people to join us. The time commitment of the role is relatively low - we meet 4 times a year, but the importance of the role is significant – volunteers assess the applications and make decisions accordingly.’  

Thanks to funding from the National Lottery the South West Peak Community Grants Scheme can allocate grants of between £500 and £10,000 to a variety of community groups that want to enhance, protect or celebrate the South West Peak.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a volunteer please contact Sally Bentley or Ruth Wilson on 01538 381356 or email sally.bentley@supportstaffordshire.org.uk or ruth.wilson@supportstaffordshire.org.uk
