The cost associated to volunteer can be a barrier to many volunteers due to personal circumstances, low income, carer responsibilities and/or disability associated costs.

The Volunteer Support Pot works in partnership with Volunteer Managers at events to help support volunteers and allow them to complete their volunteering commitments.

Over the years Volunteer Scotland has worked in partnership with a number of organisations to help deliver a Volunteer Support Pot at major sporting events in Scotland:
