3VA's Performance

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