Representing Sunderland's Voluntary Community Sector Since 1973

Home: What We Do

Our 2020 Vision: Engage, Inspire and Enpower

VCAS are dedicated to supporting, promoting and enabling the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) in Sunderland. We enable the diverse sector in Sunderland to have an opportunity for representation and support. We  champion their needs and enable a more resilient, and dynamic sector. VCAS have been the trusted representation for an independent voluntary and community sector for 50 years and we are passionate about supporting a vibrant, dynamic and healthy sector that will enable voluntary community based organisations and charities in Sunderland to thrive.


The sector's independence needs to be understood and valued, not just by stakeholders but by the voluntary sector itself. Voluntary organisations need to ensure and assert their values and independence.’
