Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 31 May 2013.

I welcome the findings of the evaluation and congratulate all involved in the MiCommunity project. To support organisations like AgeUK, I recently launched the new Team London website which is designed to make it easier for Londoners to find such opportunities. The website has a specific focus on similar community-based volunteering opportunities. The website also contains information about further Team London funding including a new Small Grants Innovation fund aimed at organisations that are using technology to improve volunteering.
