Welcome to Gloucestershire’s first Voluntary and Community Awards.
Working in partnership, the VCS Alliance and Charlie’s Cancer Support & Therapy Centre have established this awards event to celebrate all that is great in our community. From individuals, to volunteer led groups and charities we want to shine a light on all the fantastic work that happens within a community setting that often goes under the radar.
The Gloucestershire VCS Alliance has a mission to be the independent voice that informs, strengthens and develops the voluntary and community sector in Gloucestershire. In order to strengthen and develop the sector we need a complete understanding of what the sector is, who it supports and what it does.
We believe that demonstrating the breadth, diversity and size of the VCSE will support the sector to be recognised for its value and help make the case for continued investment in the sector. To that effect, we want to highlight and celebrate all the work that is done within the sector and raise the profile of organisations and individuals through an annual event.
