Birmingham Voluntary Service Council (BVSC) is the primary voluntary sector support organisation in England’s second city, providing support to volunteers, voluntary groups and civil society in the largest single local authority area in Europe.

“BVSC supports voluntary action by local people, including voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises. We work in partnership with the voluntary, public, private, academic and faith sectors in the city, providing collaborative voluntary sector leadership, strong and accountable communications and networking structures, high quality business development support, local volunteering brokerage facilities, and a range of direct services to Birmingham’s residents.

We support, inform and network local voluntary organisations and community groups through our Third Sector Assembly, and a significant element of our work is in representing and advocating for the views and needs of people involved in local voluntary action.”
