Medway Change Makers is a partnership project, led by Ideas Test, which aims to harness the momentum generated through Medway’s recent City of Culture bid to build on the cultural volunteering offer across the region. We will be working closely Medway Voluntary Action, Medway Place Board, Creative Medway & Medway Council to support, train and create opportunities to enable anyone to connect with Medway’s cultural organisations, outdoor events, festivals and celebrations.

Medway is one of four locations which have been awarded a grant from the Big Lottery Fund, Spirit 2012 – Volunteering Cities fund

Spirit of 2012 is the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy fund. Spirit awards grants for inclusive arts, sports and volunteering activities in communities that bring people together to improve their wellbeing. The National Lottery Community Fund founded Spirit in 2013 with a £47m endowment to continue and recreate the spirit of pride, positivity and community that inspired people across the UK during the London 2012 Games. Spirit of 2012’s grant-holders range from national to small, hyper-local organisations.
