Who we are
Practical information, advice and support for Colchester’s voluntary organisations
Situated at the heart of the local voluntary and community sector since 1968, we are an independent, charitable infrastructure organisation whose aim is to inspire groups to seize opportunities and become more enterprising and sustainable.
Our Vision is:

We aim to do this in line with our core values, which are to:
- provide passionate, intelligent leadership for the sector in Colchester, Essex and beyond;
- empower people, groups and organisations through high quality support;
- be creative and innovative in meeting the needs of local communities and the voluntary and community groups and organisations that serve them; and
- be fair and honest in everything we do.
