About Spark Somerset

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 became Spark in April 2016 following the merger of SSVCA's Voluntary Sector Support project and Mendip Community Support. On 1 January 2019, we moved our operations to a new CIO and became Spark Somerset. 

We provide information, advice, training and support to charities and community groups.

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

We also run the Volunteer Service, inspiring people to get involved and make a difference in their communities.
