Volunteering Partnerships for experienced organisations

section

Experienced volunteering organisations can develop and implement longer-term projects under the European Solidarity Corps. This action is called Volunteering Partnerships, for three-year projects.

It provides organisations with a simplified format for implementing volunteering activities.

Volunteering Partnerships can implement the same activities as Volunteering Projects, following the same eligibility criteria and funding rules.

Organisations gain the following benefits from the Framework Agreement:

  • Funding for the duration of the programme (until 2020);
  • Simplified annual grant applications, as opposed to three application rounds per year; and
  • Fast track grant applications – after the Framework Agreement has been approved, there is no qualitative assessment required.

Activities should strategically respond to societal needs, contribute to strengthening communities and enable young people to develop their potential.

How it works

If you are from an organisation with experience of volunteering projects, you can apply for the Volunteering Partnerships Framework Agreement. At this stage, organisations submit an overall application which covers three years and objectives, relevance and impact. Description of activities over the three years and an indicative description of how these will be divided into annual targets must be included.

If the Volunteering Partnerships Framework Agreement application is approved and signed, you will be eligible to make simplified yearly applications via the Volunteering Partnerships Annual Grant application form (from 2018 until 2020).  

Successful Volunteering Partnership applicants cannot apply for funding under the action Volunteering Projects.
