Volunteer Innovation Fund


At the request of the Branch Working group, the WEA Trustees have approved a volunteer innovation fund of £10,000 for projects aimed at making a difference in local communities through adult learning. Each project can apply for up to £1,000. The project should be volunteer led and involve a new or adapted approach to the WEA’s work which is innovative and imaginative.

If successful we will ask you to tell your story through film, audio or pictures and provide us with a short case study. We hope that the really successful innovations will be taken up by other volunteers in the future. 

If you are interested, you can find out more about the fund and how to apply on the WEA Intranet. The document is listed as ‘Guidance – Volunteer Innovation Fund’. If you have any questions please contact Pearl Ryall, Membership and Volunteer Manager via pryall@wea.org.uk.
