Welcome to vas

VAS (Voluntary Action Sheffield) has provided support and leadership for the voluntary sector for over 90 years.

We focus on community impact, influence decision makers and champion volunteering as a force for positive action.

Getting involved in community projects is a huge part of what gives us an identity as Sheffielders and makes the city a welcoming, fun and thriving place to live and work.  We do the things which enable groups to focus their energy on making a difference with people.

Our vision is for people to work together to make a vital and growing contribution to quality of life in all Sheffield’s communities.

Our mission is to support the development of voluntary and community action in a professional way, so it is sustainable & brings about positive social change.
