The North Glasgow Voluntary Sector Network was formally established in 2009 although voluntary organisations have been working closely together for some time.
In coming together in a more structured way, the NGVSN aims to:
The network is made up of over 90 voluntary organisations covering a wide range of work including environmental, youth, arts, disability, health, older people and community safety. Some members employ a large staff and some have no employees; some work throughout the North and others are more local; some receive funding from the local authority and others do not. What holds the network together is a common commitment to the culture and ethos of the voluntary sector and a desire to make a difference in the lives of local people.
- Support voluntary organisations through advice and training
- Provide a forum for sharing of views and ideas
- Provide a means for the voluntary sector to engage with the community planning process
- Organise Network Events which allow members to engage with each other
The underlying ethos of the NGVSN is that we are stronger together.
