About Us

Third Sector Support Wales is a network of support organisations for the whole of the voluntary 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 voluntary sector groups to identify and address what matters to them. Our core activities to strengthen the voluntary sector and volunteering focus on:

  • Enabling and supporting
  • Being a catalyst
  • Engaging and influencing

“The third sector has always been at the heart of positive change and with our current challenging climate, the roles of our diverse organisations have become more important than ever. We must stand up for others and support one another to continue to achieve.”

Our work is broadly focused on the common themes of:

  • Information and advice
  • Learning and development
  • Networking and communication
