We are pleased to launch this easy-read report, which explains and celebrates the work of the VCSE sector in BOB. Often people’s families and communities helped to build the VSCE organisations in the area where they live.
The VCSE sector helps children and adults within their families and communities. There are 7500 VCSE organisations in our part of the country. Most VCSE organisations are small and have an income below £50,000 but altogether, the sector is worth more than £2 billion in money terms. There are about 162,000 regular volunteers and 44,500 people with jobs in the sector.
