About Update

Update was launched by BVSC in 1992 as a monthly magazine to provide policy and development news to voluntary agencies in Birmingham. Over the years Update has evolved and developed, enjoying several makeovers that reflected not only the changing face of BVSC but changes in design and communications more generally. In 2017 BVSC took the boldest step to date by switching to a new digital format. Read more about this transformation: BVSC's Update goes digital!
