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.
In the Community
Involve Swindon is a network of companies, statutory bodies and voluntary organisations working together to encourage employees to give their time and develop their skills through volunteering in the local community. Involve Swindon is managed by a steering group of representatives drawn from the public, private and charity sectors, including Voluntary Action Swindon.
Voluntary Action Swindon facilitates Swindon Sports Forum. The result of an initiative from Swindon Borough Council, the Sports Forum is run by a committee of dedicated volunteers from a variety of local sports clubs, from football to water polo. The mission of Swindon Sports Forum is for sport to succeed and flourish in Swindon.
Voluntary Action Swindon facilitiates Swindon Equality Coalition. The Swindon Equality Coalition is a network of groups and people who are interested in making equality reality in Swindon. It has a role in scrutinising the Council and its partners about how they make decisions and deliver service from an equality perspective.
Sanford House (Swindon Advice & Support Centre) is a central hub for charitable services in Swindon. Sanford House provides information, advice and support to local residents under one roof and in an easily accessible location. Voluntary Action Swindon took a lead role on the design and development of the centre, and now has responsibility for managing the building.
