Our Sector Support service is people focussed, and proactive and we have service expertise across a wide range of areas. This makes us an ideal partner for public service organisations, trusts, foundations and community focussed businesses wishing to engage the sector and communities in a way that facilitates community led conversations, inspires trust and confidence and brings community benefits.


We deliver service level agreements with other public sector funders in relation to health, social care and wellbeing, and enterprise development and have considerable expertise in public engagement campaigns, and proactive sector support linked to grant fund distribution - getting the money out to voluntary and community groups, third sector organisations and social enterprises to enable #DenbighshireVolunteers to keep on doing great things.


We have a robust model and approach to fund management and distribution which is consistently used and applied (in a proportionate) manner across all our funds combining excellent publicity and promotion, underpinned by outreach events and activities and sector support from start to finish. We also have an excellent reputation with those whom we have delivered service level agreements in this area.

Hello again … … today we have a small favour to ask. Volunteers, voluntary and community action and the third sector are at the heart of building more sustainable and resilient communities and we need them more than ever.


DVSC receives core funding from the Welsh Government but we need to raise more money so that we can continue to provide excellent sector support - whether you're a volunteer,  voluntary and community group or a third sector organisation.


We can provide a wealth of information and resources and we want to keep our services as accessible as we can, and to reach as many groups as we can.  So we think it’s fair to ask people who visit us often for their help - if they feel able to give it.


Our Sector Support service is resource intensive, but we are investing in it because we believe providing support to volunteers, voluntary and community groups, charities, social enterprises and community interest companies - has to be at the heart of what we do. If you like what we are about, and you want to help support it, our future would be much more secure.
