Representing Sunderland's Voluntary Community Sector Since 1973
"I am just dropping you a line to say thank you for engaging with us over the past 12 months. We can see that you have made a difference for organisations in Sunderland by acting as a link between funders and the VCS sector, and in common sense ways, that we think has previously been missing before your involvement.”
