VAA is both a Charity and a Company limited by guarantee, registered in Scotland and governed by a Board of Directors who are volunteers possessing significant background experience in working with local communities. The organisation currently has 20 paid employees and our work is complimented further by the efforts of volunteers.
Our work includes providing a Third Sector interface role (TSI), a community development function and, as a key organisation, in empowering communities and combatting poverty.
Our work in supporting third sector and volunteering initiatives is crucial to securing new resources for the sector to become more sustainable and proactive in reshaping services to individuals, families and communities. Whilst VAA has a core element to its work, there are many other projects and activities we manage or support in partnership with other agencies and partners.
