Extra £40m for Social Action Fund - 28 June 2012

The government is to treble the funding available through the Social Action Fund, adding £40m over three years to the £20m already pledged.

The extra money was the only new announcement in yesterday’s update from the Cabinet Office reviewing progress on the Giving White Paper a year since its publication and providing feedback on the Giving Summit held early last month.

The additional £40m will 'back ambitious social action campaigns that are looking to mobilise large numbers of people'. It will focus on 'grassroots campaigns that give people the opportunity to help the most vulnerable people in society'.
