BBV, funded by The Big Lottery, aimed to give WEA students from the settled and new migrant communities in the inner city ward of East Handsworth and Lozells a taste of volunteering in 2012/13. The WEA helped to:
• Find volunteering opportunities for students
• Offer training to make students more confident in their volunteering roles
• Support transport costs
• Support childcare costs
The project, which ran for a year, opened up new opportunities for those students who were looking for something more, maybe wanting to go into higher education or find long term employment.
