New Funding for International Volunteering!

David Cameron has just annouced the new International Citizen Scheme, to start next year, which will allow 1,000 means tested 18/25 years olds and 250 others to apply for grants to enable them to travel abroad on a volunteering programme.

This is a wonderful opportunity for those who would not normally be able to afford to volunteer abroad.  You can read more about this on the link below.
