Our impact

3VA's core work is directed by our Service Level Agreement with East Sussex County Council, Eastbourne Borough Council, Lewes District Council and Wealden District Council. We also take on a number of different projects, either short-term or long-term, to support the voluntary and community sector in Eastbourne, Lewes and Wealden.

Quality Mark

We proudly hold the NAVCA Quality Award, a vigourously assessed national quality mark for Councils of Voluntary Services awarded by our national body NAVCA.
