Our Vision

Our vision is to build a stronger and more inclusive civil society to meet the needs of Black and Minoritised and other disadvantaged communities. 

Our Features

V4CE Artificial Intelligence Webinar 

Despite the well-founded attacks and criticism of programmed bias, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could potentially have huge benefits for society including addressing aspects of racial and social inequality.

In the spirit of optimism, we are running several online introductory webinars where we will explore the ground-breaking potential of AI in different aspects such as fundraising, project management and social media communications.

This webinar is £10, or £5 if you are a V4CE member. (Membership is free. Become a member here.)

Join our online panel discussion on how the cost-of-living crisis is disproportionately affecting vulnerable groups, influencing the upcoming UK general elections and exacerbating social issues on a local and a global landscape.

You will have the chance to share your thoughts and ask questions to charity representatives, political candidates, economists and journalists.

In partnership with Buddle, we are delighted to offer a free 1 hour session on Exploring Legal Structures.

Buddle training courses are short, free training sessions that will develop your knowledge and understanding and ultimately will help you develop and support your club, group or organisation. These courses are available to individuals 16 years of age or above, based in England.

These training opportunities are funded by Sport England to ensure they are free to attend and accessible to everyone (we anticipate that the cost per person would be at least £25).

Our Impact, Growing & Testimonials

Islington Bangladesh Association

“Our experience of working with V4CE is very positive. We especially enjoyed all workshops and learnt important skills and management tools that helped us run our project more successfully and also improved our organisational capacity. The idea of providing capacity building support to organisations in addition to funding was practical and effective.”
