Ian Darch, our Chief Executive for over 18 years, will be retiring at the end of August 2023.

Ian says: “I am proud to have collaborated with the WVCA staff, trustees, volunteers, and partners to champion our brilliant sector. Together, we have provided invaluable support to hundreds of voluntary groups, organisations, and countless local people, supporting them to be the best they can be. Additionally, our efforts have successfully secured many millions of pounds for our City, ensuring continued support for this work.”

Over the coming weeks Ian’s focus will be on ensuring that WVCA is best placed to continue its great work and to be able to rise to the undoubted challenges that it and our City will face in the years ahead.

The recruitment of a new Chief Executive will begin in the coming days.

Ian can be contacted via email at ian.darch@wvca.org.uk.
