DVA and Volunteer Centre Dundee Together – Your Views

Following Volunteer Centre Dundee (VCD) and Dundee Voluntary Action (DVA) being in discussion regarding the joining of our two organisations, key stakeholders were asked to share their views to inform our shared strategy.

Feeding back on the challenges that third sector organisations face in the coming year sourcing long-term funding and recruiting and retaining volunteers were highlighted as key.


Developing new projects and services as well as investing in staff and volunteers were highlighted as key priorities for third sector organisations over the next year.

As well as highlighting the breath of types of services across the sector the survey also collected thoughts on how Volunteer Centre Dundee and Dundee Voluntary Action can better support the sector. These included an emphasis on training, funding opportunities and connecting organisations.
