VOISE: Voluntary Organisations in Sunderland Engage

 Registration is closed for this event
Come and join us at Sunderland's newest building The Beam at VAUX for an informative and interactive event to give the VCSE sector in Sunderland a voice in how best they can be supported moving forward.


The contribution made by the voluntary and community sector in the city of Sunderland has a significant impact on our local communities. VCS services, activities, resources and volunteers provide a raft of opportunities that enrich lives throughout the city. Recent challenges and developments in Sunderland’s Voluntary Sector has initiated a need for a fresh new dialogue about the future of the sector and how it will be best supported and developed to ensure a more dynamic and sustainable future in the City.


To be able to understand how the Voluntary and Community Sector in Sunderland can be supported to provide for a more vibrant, effective, resilient and resourceful sector; VCAS (Voluntary and Community Action Sunderland) VONNE (Voluntary Organisations’ Network North East), Sunderland City Council  and Sunderland All Together Better Alliance have worked with a steering group of local organisations to create this event for the sector to come together and share their views, concerns and vision.

VOISE: Voluntary Organisations in Sunderland Engage, will provide an opportunity to listen to the sector and to hear clearly what is needed to champion and support the VCS moving forward.


We will hear from a small number of speakers and have two discussion sessions:

1) Where are we now? What's working and what's not?

2) The Art of the Possible - How do we achieve a thriving and vibrant voluntary and community sector for Sunderland?


Places are limited and capped at two per organisation please as we want to engage with as many organisations as possible.
