We provide professional and practical tools to help build and grow charities and community organisations through advice, guidance, high quality training and by facilitating collaboration.
We support and champion volunteers to promote the incredible value of volunteering. We also provide a platform for promoting volunteering opportunities and sharing good practice – our Volunteering Hub
The voluntary sector makes an amazing difference to the local community, and we believe it deserves a bigger voice. We provide a network for connecting organisations and speak up on behalf of our sector.
