We like to think that we offer exemplary quality and we are constantly examining our own practice to improve our programmes.

To get a feel for the quality that we offer, here are just some of the comments and feedback from previous clients.

“VAHC have helped us with funding, volunteers, training and research and have been a great source of support over the past three years.”

“Absolutely delighted with the support we have received from VAHC particularly related to setting up a new web site which was done very professionally and in excellent time. My experience with VAHC has been at all times positive and the staff have been very helpful.”

“Great training topics and good networking are vital for charities to be the best they can be. VAHC offers us these.”

“I attended a session on the roles and responsibilities of Trustees at the beginning of the year. I had been a Trustee for six years but had taken on the additional role of Charity Secretary. The two hour evening session was excellent and provided a holistic overview of how charities operate and the legal framework that supports and governs the work we do.”

“VAHC have helped us greatly over the past three years particularly in developing our capacity. VAHC have provided a really good trustee training program, and helped us carry out surveys and collate and analyse the data. We have now used this data to apply for funding, and to improve and target our community services. VAHC also carry out our DBS checks and have offered a wealth of support in everything from social media, volunteer support and management, managing our environmental impact, signposting and VCS networking.”
