Media Centre

VODG is the leading national infrastructure organisation, bringing together more than 100 charities who employ more than 85,000 staff. Together they deliver more that £2.8 billion in services.

Our members’ work is focused on enabling disabled people of all ages to live the lives they choose. VODG believes that an ambitious, trusted and vibrant voluntary sector that works together plays a unique role in achieving this aim.

We work on behalf of members to influence the development of social care policy, build relationships with government and other key agencies, promote best practice and keep members up to date on matters that affect service delivery.

If you’re a journalist or work in the media and would like to speak to us about disability issues or our work, please get in touch.
