About Spark

We became Spark in April 2016 following the merger of SSVCA's Voluntary Sector Support project and Mendip Community Support.

We have been providing practical support to the voluntary sector in Somerset for many years. Our aim is to inspire strong and sustainable communities through voluntary and community action.

We provide information, advice, training and support to charities and community groups in South Somerset, Mendip and Sedgemoor.

We represent the sector on strategic bodies, both at a District and County level.

We run the Volunteer Service across these three districts, inspiring people to get involved and make a difference in their communities.
