Towards a “one-stop shop” for grant applications from associations?

“I will simplify the paperwork. We are working to create a one-stop shop vis-à-vis the State for grant applications as part of a pact of trust between associations and the State”, declared this Sunday, September 18 the Secretary of State in charge of Associative Life, Marlène Schiappa, on Franceinfo.

A platform for volunteers

Another avenue put forward by Ms. Schiappa to support volunteering, the creation by the end of the year of a platform allowing volunteers to know “what diplomas they can claim” as part of the validation of the achievements of the live. “There are a lot of people who have signed up as volunteers but can’t claim it as a skill on their CV because they don’t have the degree to go with it,” Ms Schiappa explained. Created in 2002, the validation of acquired experience allows anyone to obtain a diploma or title by having their skills acquired during their professional or voluntary experience certified.
