VONNE is the regional support body for the North East Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Sector. We represent over 1300 member charities, voluntary organisations, community groups, networks and social enterprises from across the region, with further reach through our many networks.
We support charities, voluntary and community groups, and social enterprises to be well informed on the policy, practice and strategy developments which affect them. We work strategically to ensure their voice is heard.
We facilitate partnerships and build opportunities for collaboration within the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in the North East, and between the sector and external stakeholders.
We also provide funding information to help charities, community and voluntary groups, and social enterprises. We facilitate programmes to build skills and capacity and develop leadership, governance and innovation in the sector.
VONNE depends on the support of our members to inform and underpin our work strengthening the North East voluntary, community and social enterprise sector and supporting the people and communities of the North East.
Together our community of over 1300 members enable us to create a collective voice and represent our membership regionally and nationally.
