  •  62% of projects had less than 25% of their funding from their institution/SU
wiscv consultation2
WiSCV Consultation
  •  Future funding issues
  • 63% recognised the importance of diversifying their funding and were looking to get funding for 09/10 onwards from a range of sources.
  • 57% were expecting some of their funding to come through the institution’s core funding – or hoped this was the case!
wiscv consultation3
WiSCV Consultation

Anticipated effects of withdrawal of TQEF

  • General feeling from most respondents was one of insecurity
  • Most respondents were not sure how volunteering will be funded, if at all, in the future. If universities will not use other funding to replace the hole left by TQEF, this will have a dramatic impact on their provision of volunteering opportunities
wiscv consultation4
WiSCV Consultation
  • Only a few reported being confident that volunteering would continue in some form, which was usually due to SMT support, or SU commitment
  • There were some respondents who said that volunteering activity would continue but it would be reduced, having to reallocate resources to priority areas or change the way volunteering is provided
