Full membership:

Full membership is open to all community and voluntary groups who:

  • Are based within the Bristol city boundaries and deliver services to individuals or communities in Bristol.
  • Support Voscur's core values.
  • Are formed by people who have come together of their own free will.
  • Are a response to issues regarding the quality and equality of life in Bristol.
  • Are accountable to their members.
  • Are independent (ie are not a national organisation or part of a national organisation)
  • Are not for private or personal profit.



Groups that work more broadly than in Bristol’s VCS (for example, public sector groups, national organisations or groups based outside Bristol) can also join Voscur as Affiliates.
