VCAT aims to develop an effective and highly skilled voluntary and community sector, capable of making a strong contribution towards a fair and open society in Trafford.
As the local support and development agency in Trafford, our role is to help voluntary and community groups and local charities in their development.
We have over 500 members drawn from Trafford's voluntary and community sector.
We provide support to groups both funded and unfunded.
We help new groups and existing groups to develop, provide information and training, assist in liaison with local government and enable the views of voluntary groups to be represented.
We work with management committee members, staff and volunteers to support them in their work. This can include: fundraising support, financial advice, personnel and employment advice, constitutions and governance, Charity and Company formation and the co-ordination of the local voluntary sector.
