We’re pleased to launch our Strategic Framework and our Plan for Change 2017-22.

This comes following the appointment of a new Board, Chief Executive and Senior Management Team at WCVA, after which it was decided - amid huge change both within Wales, at UK-level and internationally - that it was time to undertake a Strategic Review and refresh our ways of working and our goals.

Our new Framework sets out our vision, mission and values for WCVA going forward. Our goal is a future where the third sector and volunteering thrive across Wales, improving wellbeing for all. We want to be a catalyst for positive change through our connecting, influencing and enabling work. And we want to continue to involve our members, be open and inclusive, create and share a strong evidence base, and maximise our impact.

This Framework has been decided on after a period of consultation and engagement with the third sector in Wales, WCVA staff, and other stakeholders.
