When it comes to showing the impact of our work, the best people to speak to are our members.
These case studies focus primarily on how VAAC has supported and helped to develop VCS organisations.

Get Bognor Social
Get Bognor Social are a social service based in Bognor Regis who are actively helping lessen
the social isolation and loneliness within our community. They are doing this by organising
events for their members and offering support to those that find it difficult to make that first step
of leaving the house. Their aim is to connect people and take them back to the old school
methods of getting out of the house and making new connections in person.
They are an organisation that had grown organically due to demand but had no structure or
procedures in place. The group came to get direction/sign posting.

Littlehampton Miniature Railway
LMR is the oldest 12.25% gauge railway in the UK. They celebrated their 70th anniversary in 2017.
They currently run along the seafront at Littlehampton for about three quarters of a mile. They have a fleet of 3 diesel engines and 4 coaches but the plan is to introduce a steam loco this summer.
LMR were looking for fundraising advice and options, what was available to apply to especially during Covid.
