Welcome to Voluntary Action Arun & Chichester

We are an organisation that promotes and supports voluntary and community groups across Arun and Chichester.

We help the sector to develop by supporting existing group as they grow and by providing advice and training to new groups as they are born, guiding them as they develop and assisting them in navigating potential pitfalls.
