Third Sector Support Wales

Third Sector Support Wales is a network of support organisations for the whole of the third sector in Wales. It consists of the 19 local and regional support bodies across Wales, the County Voluntary Councils (CVCs) and the national support body, Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA).

We work with citizens, volunteers and third sector groups to identify and address what matters to them. Our core activities to strengthen the third sector and volunteering focus on:

Enabling and supporting
Being a catalyst
Engaging and influencing

To achieve our shared goal we collaborate with other key partners across the third sector, the public sector, business, research and funders.
We have four pillars of activity that make up our universal offer, these are:

Good governance
Sustainable funding
Engagement and influencing

Our work is broadly focused on the common themes of:

Information and advice
Learning and development
Networking and communication
Shaping, influencing and building the social capital and resilience of the sector
Raising the profile of the sector
