Welcome to Engage West Somerset
Engage – the Voluntary Sector Development Agency for West Somerset.
Supporting the community.
Engage is a charity whose aim is to support the development of a vibrant, effective and influential voluntary and community sector by providing a range of services:
Operating a local Volunteer Centre to bring together organisations offering volunteering opportunities and members of our community seeking to offer their time/expertise.
Co-ordinating the West Somerset Voluntary Sector Forum, an opportunity for voluntary groups to meet, receive briefings and discuss matters of mutual interest.
Acting as a voice for the voluntary and community sectors in West Somerset.
Providing advice and support on setting up and running charities.
Advising on potential funding sources and on preparing funding applications.
Establishing projects to respond to local needs – for example, Engage runs a recycling service for good quality used furniture, making it available at discount prices to low-income individuals/families.
