We support and champion York’s voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector to make positive change, challenge issues and grow new ideas to strengthen communities.

How can we support your organisation?

As an independent charity we work directly with, and for, charities, community groups and social enterprises here in York. A lot of our work is behind the scenes; providing support with the day-to-day running of VCSE organisations, including:

  • Supporting new and existing VCSE groups and organisations with our training programme, guidance about legal structures, governance issues, policies and procedures and identifying potential funding sources and developing funding bids;
  • Bringing organisations together to discuss and challenge local issues through our events and voluntary sector forums;
  • Representing the sector at strategic board level to ensure the sector’s voice is heard;
  • Championing the sector by promoting what you do best – making a difference for individuals and their communities.
