Voluntary and community sector support

Our approach

The Council works in a number of ways to support and strengthen our local voluntary and community sector (VCS), including

  • grant giving and financial support
  • in kind support, in some instances in lieu of some grant funding
  • ongoing dialogue with our local VCS to identify and develop opportunities
  • promoting skills based volunteering
  • working with Voluntary Action Reigate & Banstead (VARB) to raise public awareness of the activity in our VCS and to recognise the value of volunteering to our residents
  • supporting the development of the skills and performance of our VCS
