Finding out about v

I’m sat on a train, on my way to a one day “Welcome to v” conference. I’ve mentioned v many times now – this is the group that is taking over the running (and perhaps more importantly, the funding) of Millennium Volunteers (MV) from the DfES.

Millennium Volunteers is our biggest single source of funding in Solent Youth Action, so v is obviously important to us.

They have invited MV providers to come to London and hear about what they have done to date, and their plans for the future – including (finally!) some details about how they will be managing and monitoring the MV projects.

There is also something in the timetable about discussion and small group sessions to get our views on the shape of the new “National Youth Volunteering Programme”.

Plus, I imagine it’ll be the usual chance to network with other youth charities.
