How much do you need to pay to participate in a voluntary work project through VAP?

If you apply for one of our UK based projects you will pay £100 to VAP. This fee covers our administration plus food, accommodation, and cultural activities during the project.

If you apply for a short term project included in the Standard Programme (2 to 4 weeks) you will pay to VAP £210.
This fee covers our administration costs and it is the only source of income of our charity. In some cases (in most European countries) you will not be charged a hosting fee by the hosting organisation as they also charge a fee to those volunteers they send abroad.
In other cases you will be charged a hosting fee that is used to cover the costs of the project itself as well as the administration costs of the hosting organisation. That fee is described in each project description and most of the times it includes transfer from the airport to the hosting organisation’s office and/or from the hosting organisation’s office to the project. The hosting fee also covers food and accommodation during the project but all other costs that you incur outside the project dates are obviously on your own charge.

If you apply for a Medium/Long Term Volunteering project you will pay to VAP £230. In most cases you will pay also a registration fee to the hosting organisation plus a monthly fee that will differ from partner to partner. The monthly fee is described in each project description and most of the times it includes transfer from the airport to the hosting organisation’s office and/or from the hosting organisation’s office to the project. The hosting fee also covers food and accommodation during the project but all other costs that you incur outside the project dates are obviously on your own charge.

All the payments above include the participation in an Orientation weekend organised by VAP in June.

All of these payments include free membership of VAP and need to be done simultaneously with the sending of your application form to us.

There are three different ways of paying your fee:

- via Bank Transfer (please ask VAP for our bank details).

- via PayPal (if you chose this way you will also have to pay the PayPal transfer charges which are £5.48 for a Standard Programme project, £3.81 for a Medium/Long Term Volunteering project or £10.23 for a Skills in Action programme project).

- via Cheque addressed to VAP.

Quote of the day

« The organisation of the camp community was fantastic! The group was great and we bonded quickly, language was always going to be a tricky one, but everyone attempted English and Indonesian so it made the whole experience fun and educational. »
