Third Sector Support Wales is a network of support organisations for the whole of the third sector in Wales. It consists of the 19 local and regional support bodies across Wales, the County Voluntary Councils (CVCs) and the national support body, Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA).

We work with citizens, volunteers and third sector groups to identify and address what matters to them. Our core activities to strengthen the third sector and volunteering focus on:

  • Enabling and supporting
  • Being a catalyst
  • Engaging and influencing


To achieve our shared goal we collaborate with other key partners across the third sector, the public sector, business, research and funders.

We have four pillars of activity that make up our universal offer, these are:

  • Gwirfoddoli
  • Llywodraethu Da
  • Cyllid Cynaliadwy
  • Ymgysylltu a Dylanwadu

“The third sector has always been at the heart of positive change and with our current challenging climate, the roles of our diverse organisations have become more important than ever. We must stand up for others and support one another to continue to achieve.”
