About Us

Voluntary Action Arun and Chichester

As from the 1st April 2012 Voluntary and Community Action Chichester District and CVS Arunwide merged to become Voluntary Action Arun and Chichester.

Through centralising our administration to one office we are able to invest more of our resources in staff who will work on an outreach basis to meet community need.

We are an organisation that promotes and supports voluntary and community groups across Arun and Chichester. Based in Bognor Regis with a network extending across the two districts, we help the sector to develop by supporting existing group as they grow and by providing advice and training to new groups as they are born, guiding them as they develop and assisting them in navigating potential pitfalls.

We are proud to draw upon a rich history of success in providing practical support to the sector and our staff have the experience and understanding needed to help our member organisations serve the community.

We are core funded by Arun District Council, Chichester District Council , Littlehampton Town Council and West Sussex County Council

We will continue to provide the following services across Arun and Chichester District’s:

  • One to one support for voluntary and community organisations including; funding, governance, business planning, HR, advocacy and training.
  • Access to low cost training for voluntary and community organisations.
  • Representation of the sector at key local partnerships.
  • Networking events to support collaboration and partnership working.
  • Publicity and promotion of the local voluntary and community sector.
  • Development of new initiatives to support the sector.
