To be held at 3:00pm on Tuesday 21st June 2022

Notice is hereby given that the directors / trustees of Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council (WVSC) are calling an Extraordinary General Meeting at the above date and time for the purpose of considering a change of name of this charitable company following a decision at a meeting of the Board of Directors / Trustees on Wednesday 25th May 2022.

The EGM will be held at 16 Temple Street Wolverhampton WV2 4AN (or another nearby venue if numbers of people wishing to attend exceed the capacity of this venue – all members will be notified of any change of venue in advance of the meeting).


That Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council (Company no. 2288239, Charity no. 700910) change its name from Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council to Wolverhampton Voluntary and Community Action.

The change of name is being proposed:

  • following a review of the work and strategic direction of Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council and a refresh of the organisation’s guiding principles.
  • in order to:
    • update the organisation’s name to better reflect the range of work it carries out.
    • avoid the confusion that exists for some people (including employees and volunteers from voluntary and community organisations, and statutory partners) as well as for members of the general public between WVSC and the City of Wolverhampton Council
    • re-assert the independence of the organisation
