VSNW works with over 140 members who work across the region directly supporting and delivering services for individuals, or are VCSE infrastructure organisations that work with local voluntary and community groups.

The 40 infrastructure organisations in membership of VSNW have a membership of 6,780 VCSE groups and are in contact with 19,800 local voluntary and community sector groups in the North West - just under two-thirds of the region’s VCSE groups.
