More exciting news today.  Discover Volunteering is a core member of a local Lincolnshire infrastructure group called 'Involving Lincs'.  Today we received the great news that the consortium has been successful in securing funding from the Big Fund to improve the way its members work together to provide frontline services to local communities.  It is an 18 month development project to streamline the way they deliver services, by developing more efficient and effective forms of support to local charities, social enterprises and community groups.  We look forward to working in partnership with all members of 'Involving Lincs' and the wider community to deliver this project.
