Change Champion projects allow good practice which exists within local interface organisations to be shared with and rolled out to colleagues throughout the network.
In 2008 the SVA Management Group invited all CVS who could evidence successful practice in particular areas of business to submit proposals to roll out this practice across the network. This first round of applications resulted in an investment of 1,348,306 being approved across seven projects.
In Spring 2009 a call for proposals for Round 2 Change Champion projects was made and this resulted in an investment of 199,842 being approved in one project.
In Autumn 2009 a call for proposals for the third and final round of Change Champion projects was made, and to take account of the development of Third Sector Interfaces, the changing operating environment for local infrastructure organisations and the economic downturn it was agreed that broadening the criteria for Round 3 was a useful and appropriate way of strengthening Volunteer Centre participation. Round 3 therefore invited proposals from CVS, Volunteer Centres and interface organisations and this resulted in an investment of 691,549 being approved across five projects.
This total investment of 2.24 million across thirteen Change Champion projects will make a significant contribution to enabling the Supporting Voluntary Action (SVA) programme achieve its aim of strengthening the voluntary sector infrastructure in Scotland
