The work of BAVO is guided by a set of values that help to determine priorities and the overall style of working.

We recognise that Bridgend County Borough is diverse and everyone has the right to equality of opportunity and to make a contribution to their community.

What we want to achieve:

  • Stronger third sector organisations through providing support, advice and training and learning opportunities, skills development and capacity building;
  • Active and diverse communities through supporting and promoting volunteering and active citizenship, equal opportunities and  diversity;
  • A confident and influential third sector, through advocating for the sectors’ inclusion in shaping policies, strategies, co-producing solutions to local issues and embedding the sector in local planning and commissioning processes;
  • A greater voice for citizens and communities through enabling service users/carers, community groups and citizens to engage in local decision making processes that affect them and their lives;
  • A sustainable third sector as a result of brokering strong partnerships, upskilling volunteers and staff, identifying coordinating and connecting opportunities for collaborative working within the third sector and across sectors.
