VODG - Shaping Lives, Supporting Excellence

The VODG is the leading umbrella group of voluntary sector providers of social care services for adults. Our members’ shared aim is to ensure that people with disabilities are supported in ways that they themselves define.

Our role is to combine and harness the separate skills, experiences and knowledge of individual member organisations, in order to challenge barriers, facilitate best practice and assist an exchange of learning. Our vision is a world where everyone with a disability has full choice and control.
