We areCommunities East

Founded in 2015, we are a VCSE Consortium, with over 60 members across the East of England. Our goal of the consortium is to safeguard and grow high-quality VCSE service provision across the East of England. Working with the communities to identify need and opportunity and in turn, unlocking funding for organisations of all sizes, across a wide range of areas from poverty to arts and heritage, environment, children and young people, adult social care, community safety… and much more.

Over the past 5 years, we have secured £2.9m of funding!
