Sunderland Voluntary Sector Alliance
Sunderland Voluntary Sector Alliance has been formed by the sector themselves, working in partnership with services across the city - including the Council, Gentoo and the Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group. The Alliance is in place to ensure the VCS in Sunderland is supported to grow and is resourced. The Alliance is seeking to enable engagement with the sector through one recognised route - for other local commissioners and national funding organisations - enabling clear communication and partnership working.
The Alliance is sector-led, building upon the Area VCS Networks - the Alliance will support the city, to recognise the importance of the voluntary and community sector in Sunderland and ensure everyone in the city understands that they must work closely with the voluntary sector if they wish to successfully deliver the ambitions of the Sunderland 2019-2030 City Plan.
This website has been created to ensure all information can be accessed in relation to the Alliance, as well as create a mechanism to share much needed resources.
