Up Skilling and Training

Devon Voluntary Action (DeVA) is passionate about up skilling the workforce and volunteers in the not-for-profit sector. 

We offer a range of learning opportunities including workshops, forums and networking events as well as one to one specific support from our team of specialist Development Workers and Volunteer Support Coordinators. 

Health and Social Care Forums

We host Health and Social Care Forums across Devon. They are an opportunity for voluntary and community groups who have a focus on health and social care to network and receive updates on the health and social care agenda with both a local and national perspective.
