Welcome to the Association for Research in the Voluntary and Community Sector (ARVAC) website.  

ARVAC was founded in 1978 as a network for researchers in the voluntary and community sector. It now provides information and training in research for and about the community sector.

We are a membership organisation and invite any researchers or practitioners from academia, the public sector and importantly, from the community sector to join. Membership is free.
