Welcome to Gloucestershire VCS Alliance

An independent voice for the voluntary and community sectors within Gloucestershire

The Alliance is an independent charitable organisation working to strengthen the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) in Gloucestershire. It is our aim to collect and represent the views of the VCS to create a stronger and more proactive sector capable of influencing policy and decision making. The Alliance has been established to be the independent voice for the VCS in Gloucestershire and to ensure that voice is heard by commissioners, policyholders and service planners. We have established links with Commissioners, the Clinical Commissioning Group and the Local Enterprise Partnership making us ideally placed to represent the views of the VCS.

Please use the form on the contact us page to sign up for our newsletter and/or our funding bulletin.

Find the commissioning calendar here with a calendar of events, tenders and funding opportunities for the county’s VCS.


The Alliance runs networking and online forums. Our networking forums are groups of organisations working in a similar field who come together to discuss ideas, generate consensus and help shape policy making. Our online discussion groups enable all VCS organisations to log in, post comments and ask questions, at any time and from any place.
