The Millennium Volunteers Scheme, launched last week by Sam Galbraith, Scottish Office minister, will urge councils, businesses and other organisations to apply for a share in a£1.5m windfall to encourage young people to take up voluntary work, reported The Herald (12 Dec, p11).

Mr Galbraith said: 'There will be three main benefits from the programme. Young people will be able to get involved in new activities, which can only broaden their confidence and capabilities.'

Organisations can either provide opportunities for young people or act as brokers for groups who have ideas for projects. Grants of up to£20,000 will be available over two years.
