Help us with our second annual survey for groups in or serving the Arun and Chichester Districts and enter the free draw to win £100 for your organisations.

VAAC regularly attends meetings where voluntary and community groups are discussed and often assumptions are made about your ability to do more e.g. participate in meetings, attend conferences etc. We often warn partners that their perceptions about you and your work may not be up to date.

To help us champion you more effectively, it would help us to know how things are for you at the moment! We intend to repeat this exercise at this time each year.Please help by completing the questionnaire on behalf of your organisation / group or passing it to someone who can.

If you prefer a hard copy or wish to complete it over the phone, do let us know on 01243 840305.
