Ross-shire Voluntary Action (RVA) was established in 1971 to serve the geographical area of Ross & Cromarty and 44 years on, RVA continues to provide invaluable services to the voluntary sector in the area.
We are proud to support the work of our local voluntary sector and bring benefit to our local communities through many strands of our work including:
This support takes many forms – from providing guidance, advice, networking opportunities to PVG, training and and advisory and representative roles.
Today, RVA continues to work to provide a high level of support to the voluntary sector within the area including promotion of volunteering and citizenship and empowering our communities to be vibrant and the local Voluntary organisations to be sustainable. We are one of the 8 partners of the Highland Third Sector Interface, which provides a strong representation of the sector at many different forums up to and including Scottish Government level.
