We help the voluntary sector to develop by supporting existing groups as they grow.
We provide advice and training for new groups as they are set up.
We aim to ensure that the voice of the local voluntary and community sector is heard.

What’s Happening

 Important Information from West Sussex County Council regarding the Skill Share Website

skill-share-logo4WSCC will be taking on the delivery of the Skill Share West Sussex Project in the coming weeks, looking to build on the work undertaken by VAAC. The project has already achieved a number of positive benefits partnering our local organisations and business community.

Championing the economy and developing safer, stronger and more resilient communities are key priorities for West Sussex County Council. We believe that the principles of Skill Share West Sussex support these ambitions. We are currently producing a timetable for this transition and updates will go out via the website and twitter account.
