About us

VSNW (Voluntary Sector North West) is the regional voluntary sector network for the North West. The purpose of VSNW is to ensure that the voluntary and community sector (VCS), in all its diversity, takes its full part in shaping the future of the North West. 

DIRECTIONS


VSNW works with over 140 members which

  • work across the region directly supporting and delivering services for individuals, or
  • are VCS infrastructure organisations (LIOs) that work with local voluntary and community groups.


VSNW members provide community services, regenerate neighbourhoods, support individuals, promote volunteering and tackle discrimination. The 40 generalist LIOs in membership of VSNW have a membership of 6,780 VCS groups and are in contact with 19,800 local voluntary and community sector groups in the North West – just under two-thirds (63%) of the region’s VCS groups.

VSNW is a registered charity (Charity no. 1081654) and a company limited by guarantee (registered in England no. 3988903 with the registered office at St Thomas Centre, Ardwick Green North, Manchester, M12 6FZ).
