Sandwell’s Voluntary and Community Sector is strongest when it works and stands together. As a membership organisation demonstrating the broad reach and diversity of our Sector, SCVO:

  • Carries greater weight in its representative role enabling a clearer voice for the voluntary and community sector,
  • Can more effectively champion the Sector and create a stronger profile for your organisation, and
  • Is able to draw in more resources to develop and sustain local members

We would like to invite you to become a member of SCVO; to be part of something bigger, together with more than 650 other local voluntary and community organisations.
