WHO ARE WE?

Welcome to our new website and new name: Vale Community Impact

The centre was founded in 1971, with a small group of volunteers providing information services and advice from a small office in Wantage Market square. At that time, we were known as the Community Information Centre.

We became a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) in January 2016 which resulted in a further name change – Wantage Independent Advice Centre, in the Vale for the Vale

We started using our new trading name, Vale Community Impact, or, VCI in 2021.

By 2020 we had over 110 volunteers including nearly 60 volunteer Drivers and 30 volunteer Good Neighbours. 

In 2008 we received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

Vale Community Impact has 14 volunteer trustees who form the Management Committee, four of whom are nominated representatives from various Councils.  The Chairman is presently Peter Harbour.
