We’re Wolverhampton Voluntary & Community Action
We used to be called Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council (WVSC).
We make a positive difference for people in Wolverhampton by working together with our vibrant communities to cultivate a thriving and inclusive city.
Our mission is to provide unrivalled, dedicated support services to the voluntary and community sector.
What do we do and how do we do it?
Our diverse team works side-by-side with communities across Wolverhampton, supporting them to thrive and become resilient.
We believe in community action, volunteering and our person-centred approach supports communities to uncover their strengths and abilities, overcome barriers and influence the decision-making processes that matter to them.
We play a leading role in bringing resources to the city that are then shared with voluntary and community organisations to deliver services for the people of Wolverhampton.
Through our work we hope to develop thriving communities and a fairer society.
As part of our work we deliver a number of projects and programmes where our team work side-by-side with our communities across the city.
Our fortnightly newsletter is packed with news on funding opportunities, jobs, events and more!
Our vision is the world we want to see. It is a world where…
Wolverhampton is a city where everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Wolverhampton is a city where the root causes of inequality are eradicated for good.
There is a thriving voluntary, community and social enterprise sector that supports strong and diverse communities.
We’re not afraid to be bold and move against the tide to make this vision a reality.
Our principles outline the way that our team goes about achieving their work. They help to guide decision-making and are also how we evaluate our work.
