MEMBER NEWS: Project Scotland and Volunteering Matters to merge
11 February 2021
We are pleased to hear that two of our members will be merging! Volunteering Matters and Project Scotland have been collaborating on a number of projects, and now have agreed to merge after a period of due diligence and approval from OSCR.
A spokesperson said: "By merging and by taking a place-based approach – shaped by local knowledge, energy and understanding – more people in local communities will be supported to overcome the challenges they may face. And more young people in Scotland and elsewhere in the UK will be supported by volunteers to overcome any barriers in their way, developing their confidence and skills to unlock their potential.
"ProjectScotland and Volunteering Matters’ combined approach will provide a platform for volunteers, young people and communities to challenge existing structures and work with decision makers to overcome barriers and inequalities."
