For the current financial year (2017/18), Voluntary Service Overseas is set to receive a total income of £47,846,000 from DFID for implementing programme work. The two largest programmes that VSO deliver are International Citizen Service (ICS) (£26,570,000) and Volunteering for Development (V4D) (£17,000,000). ICS enables around 6,000 young people per year to contribute to poverty reduction through 12 week projects overseas, which builds their awareness of poverty issues and their personal skills, enabling them to contribute as active citizens when they return to the UK. V4D mobilises around 1,300 mid to late career professionals per year from the health, education and business sectors to volunteer overseas on long term placements. This work improves poor people’s access to basic services and builds new partnerships for a Global Britain.
