The South West Foundation has worked with over 1,900 groups and 80 networks in the past decade, and this is what makes us unique. We foucus on the smaller Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations (VCOs).We have worked with these groups on both small and large projects in order to help them and further the amazing work that they do. They work in communties, not just in making communities a better place, especially for those most in need, but use their ability to engage with the wider community through volunteering and giving people a voice and say in their communities.
