Small can be beautiful
Adur Voluntary Action (AVA) is an independent movement of voluntary, community and charitable groups and a registered charity founded in 1959. Our members work co-operatively to support one another in mutual aid, self-help, and the building of warm, trusting networks of activity.
We co-ordinate this through regular meetings of our Board of Trustees, through Adur Community Network, and Adur Community Coalition, our co-operative consortium; through our two centres in Shoreham and Lancing; through our support for volunteering and community action; and by offering the transport resources of Adur Community Transport.
Whilst our mutual support is available to all members, membership also implies a commitment to contribute skills and resources to our movement.
