Welcome to VCAEC
We began as the Ely Volunteer Centre in 1991. In 1996 we started the Helping Hands Gardening Team and in 1998 we started the East Cambs Social Car Scheme
In 2007, the Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) came to Ely, and the two organisations merged in 2008. The name Voluntary and Community Action for East Cambridgeshire (VCAEC) was agreed at our annual general meeting. We are unique within Cambridgeshire as we are an independent charity offering a dual role within East Cambridgeshire.
