Our services

Volunteers from Sheffield community group, Steel Valley Project.VAS supports voluntary and community organisations in Sheffield at all stages of development. It doesn't matter if you are big or small, established or new - we exist to support you and your work.

We provide advice, support, training and specialist services to help make your organisation stronger and more effective, and help you to focus on delivering your activities and services to benefit Sheffield’s communities.

Some of our services and support are free of charge and some services are charged for. We have some funding to support our work but we also have to generate income to cover some of our costs. We will be clear with you if there is any cost and will always try to offer some free or low cost advice and support, particularly for smaller organisations and groups in crisis.

Take a look at all of our services (listed in the left hand menu) or email info@vas.org.uk with details of your specific needs.


VAS has achieved the Customer First Award – this means that we will focus on our customers’ needs, deliver high quality services and put our customers first. Take a look at our Customer Charter.


 We welcome any feedback, positive or negative. Please contact Maddy Desforges, Chief Executive, if you have any comments.
