We are the Voluntary Sector Development Team, and we would like to introduce ourselves to you, to let you know that we are here to support you and the voluntary sector organisations, groups, or clubs that work with children and young people in Nottinghamshire.

We would like to reach as many play/youth settings across the county as possible, following the covid pandemic many play/youth settings are just going back to normal, we can support groups by developing committees, reviewing policies, and finding out about funding opportunities.

We are hoping you could promote our service through your local networks and together we can increase opportunities for local children and young people.

Please see the link below that provides further details on how we can support the voluntary sector.
