BVSC Membership

BVSC MembershipBVSC Membership encourages the development of a voluntary sector network in Birmingham, with the latest news, events, training, funding opportunities and jobs shared with our members on a regular basis.

We encourage members to network and collaborate via the Third Sector Assembly, we share resources and practical advice via our online resource portal and member organisations are also included in our third sector directory.

BVSC membership is completely free of charge.

Benefits of Membership


All BVSC members are automatically signed up to our Friday e-bulletin. This is a digest of the latest third sector news, events, training, funding opportunities and jobs in Birmingham—ensuring that our members are always the first to hear about the latest developments.

BVSC Directory

Full members are entitled to feature on the BVSC directory. This is a popular online tool used by individuals and organisations across Birmingham to search for service providers and causes to get involved with.

Third Sector Assembly

With full membership (see above for more details), your organisation becomes part of the Third Sector Assembly, a long-term association of third sector networks facilitated by BVSC to improve communication across the sector, to grow its ability to influence and to improve relationships with the public sector. Members have the opportunity to join specific networks within the Third Sector Assembly such as children & young people, housing, environment and many more.

Voting Rights

At BVSC we are proud to be an organisation led by its members. Full membership comes with the option to become a voting member of BVSC. Voting rights are exercised at BVSC’s AGM when we set the strategic direction of our organisation; reflecting the needs and values of our membership.
