Registered Charity



We are an umbrella organisation set up to develop and promote voluntary and community action throughout the county borough. Our aim is to provide support, guidance, practical assistance and information to local voluntary sector groups to develop skills, services and activities, ensuring they are represented across a wide range of issues locally, regionally and nationally.

We are part of the third sector infrastructure support network in Wales and we work closely with other CVCs and Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA). We are a membership organisation open to national and local voluntary and community groups. Membership to BAVO is currently free of charge and we offer a range of benefits including development support, crisis support, access to funding pots through funding searches and grant-making, policy support, training, representation and connectivity to local, regional and national strategy work.
