“Without QiB we would not be part of the Intandem portfolio which, as a national initiative, is very significant for Volunteer Glasgow; we wouldn’t have been able to access Children in Need funding and the match funding from BIG Lottery would have been unlikely.  The organisation continues to learn from the process of review and reflection.”
