How Medway Voluntary Action supported this organisation
MVA were part of the development team that helped to establish these two Community Interest Companies. Alongside a group of dedicated community volunteers and a contracted team from DERiC (Developing and Empowering Resources in Communities), MVA were able to support these organisations from start up right through to taking on their first Partners (clients).
Going forward, MVA remain committed to these organisations and the vision of social action within communities. Providing ongoing support and advice, MVA are able to assist these organisations continue to build on their success.
