About us

Gosport Voluntary Action (GVA), a registered Charity, is the umbrella body (Council of Voluntary Services) for Gosport and surrounding areas.  It provides help and support to over 200 local, voluntary and community groups in the Borough, that need help with governance issues, finding funding, recruiting and managing volunteers and accessing training.  It also represents member group interests at a wide range of strategic meetings.

GVA also is passionate about improving the quality of life for all residents of Gosport but in particular those with disabilities or who are disadvantaged in some way.
