Welcome to Voluntary Action Arun & Chichester

VAAC aims to provide information and news to local voluntary and community groups in the Arun and Chichester districts. 

We are a local organisation that promotes and supports voluntary and community groups in the Arun and Chichester districts.
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.
