Get help for your organisation’s unmet needs

VAL has recently joined the VCS Emergency Partnership (VCS EP) which can help you get the things you need to help communities.

Through its regional structure the VCS EP (a partnership of big national charities and local infrastructure organisations like VAL) is building a picture of how the pandemic is effecting third sector organisations and communities around the country.

One of the great things about the VCS EP is that meets with national government regularly, so if the things that you see changing match with the experience elsewhere, you can be sure that national decision makers will hear about it.

Perhaps the most important thing about the VCS EP is that it can also direct resources, like food or PPE to organisations on the ground, where those needs can’ t be met locally. Once you tell us what you need, our nominated rep Rich Warrington feeds your request into the regional system and it swings into action.

You can find out more about the VCS EP in the following documents
