Voluntary Action Swindon is a charity that helps other charities. We enable and develop the local voluntary and community sector through advice and training, running campaigns and events, supporting networks and representing sector views to policymakers.

Voluntary Action Swindon (VAS) is the Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) in Swindon. A CVS is a charity which supports other charities and coordinates voluntary activity in the local area, as opposed to a frontline charity which supports individuals directly. A CVS is also a forum through which local voluntary and community organisations and statutory sector organisations can communicate with each other and work together.

VAS offers a wide variety of services and support to the local voluntary and community sector. This includes advice onfundraisingandgovernance,printing services,DBS checksandroom/equipment hire.VAS runs or helps to administer several of the major networks and projects in Swindon’s voluntary and community sector, including Swindon Sports Forum,Sanford House,Swindon Equality Coalition, and the SAIL Project.
