Background to the Volunteer Academy

In 2011, the Chair of Volunteer Centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde, David Blower MBE, outlined his concept of a Volunteer Academy that would be a one-stop shop for volunteers that would be organised and run by Volunteer Centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde.

In 2012, the Volunteer Centre’s Volunteer Academy, was part of a delivery partnership for Blackpool’s Transforming Local Infrastructure project (later to become incorporated as One Blackpool), funded by the Cabinet Office through the Big Lottery Fund. Between April 2013 and March 2014, the Volunteer Centre Volunteer Academy, was a One Blackpool delivery partner for the Third Sector Strategic Partnership which was commissioned by Blackpool Council.
