  • To ensure RVA is an inclusive charity that reflects the diversity of Reading in the shaping of our staff team, volunteers, trustees and how we work.
  • To support local charities and community groups to review their own inclusion policies and develop inclusion plans.
  • To collaborate with partners, colleagues and stakeholders to support the local voluntary sector to develop a shared Reading VCS Inclusion Strategy.
  • To support local community groups to build their capacity to be able to participate in partnership groups and forums.
