Impact Reports

BAVO’s purpose is to support and encourage the development of a thriving voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Bridgend County Borough. We work with our members and in partnership with statutory bodies so that people’s quality of life is improved and we enable others to take social action to tackle local issues and inequalities.

The outcomes we aim to achieve are:

Stronger third sector organisations
Through providing support, advice and training and learning opportunities, skills development and capacity building.

A vibrant and influential third sector
Through ensuring the sector influences strategy, policy and ways of working. Embedding the sector in co-production and solutions to local issues.

A voice for citizens and communities
Through engaging with service users, people with lived experience, communities and citizens to enable their voice to be part of local decision-making processes that affect them and their lives.

A sustainable third sector
Through attracting investment, brokering partnerships, coordinating opportunities for collaborative working, promoting funding opportunities and administering grants.

Active and diverse communities
Through supporting and promoting volunteering and active citizenship, equal opportunities and diversity.
