Voluntary Action North Lanarkshire (VANL) is the development agency for third sector organisations in North Lanarkshire.
From April 2010, VANL replaces the two third sector support bodies in the area (CVS North Lanarkshire and Volunteer Centre North Lanarkshire) to form a single interface for voluntary and community organisations, their staff and volunteers.
The evolution of VANL marks a landmark in the development of the infrastructure for volunteering and voluntary sector development in the area. For the first time, a single organisation will be the point of contact for information, advice and support on voluntary action, and will represent the sector in strategic dialogue with community planning partners.
Operating from offices in Airdrie and Wishaw, VANL is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status (Scottish Charity no. SC041224; Company no. 369302), and is a membership organisation open to third sector organisations across the local authority area.
