I know that many of you provide a service for voluntary and community organisations either in your professional role or as members of your local community and thought you might be interested in the HMRC recent announcement about funding to the voluntary and community sectors (VCS).
We are looking for VCS organisations that provide advice and support to those customers who, for various reasons, need extra help at some point in their lives when dealing with us. This is of particular interest as we move towards a digital way of engagement as more of our communications will be sent out digitally.
In summary bids should include one or more of the following activities:
- Advice and Support
- Digital inclusion
- Specialist support and referrals
All the information you need is in the application guidance if you follow the link above.
If you are interested in how HMRC helps local communities' hopefully this will inspire you to get involved.
I know you are all busy at this time of the year but as applications close 8 November 2015 you will need to act quickly.
