Established in 1964, we work to help people and their communities thrive through heritage, media and supported volunteering.

We exist to enable the most disadvantaged to engage with their communities, facilitating the positive health and well-being of individuals and the places they call home, through community heritage, media and supported volunteering opportunities.

VCS Cymru was the first local volunteering service to be established in Wales – and only the second in the UK (after the CSV London ‘Task Force’ was set-up some six months before).

We have always changed and adapted to meet the needs of our communities. From typewriters to Podcasts and social media, we have been at the heart of the thriving communities in Cardiff for generations, working to encourage, enable and inspire individuals and community spirit.
