The Virtual Community Foundation (VCF) reflects the culture and values of us as a group. We believe strongly in social responsibility. And VCF as an organisation allows us to work together on our benevolent, social, economic and employment initiatives.
These include supporting our nominated charity, funding community, staff volunteering and mentoring.
And it also includes our Virtual Purpose social welfare programme.
Virtual Purpose gives practical help and support to people who are marginalised and struggling to secure employment. We help to promote participants’ wellbeing and resilience through mentoring and counselling, and empower them with the life skills and confidence they need to change their circumstances. The Virtual Purpose course offers a structured approach to training and development. The 12-week programme includes a practical focus on CV building and maximising existing skills, qualifications, and work experience. Delegates earn a wage while they’re on the programme. And at the end of it we help them to find a permanent job – either within the Virtual Services Group if we can, or elsewhere – armed with a course certificate, qualifications and practical skills, a reference from us, and a confidence in their future.
Please get in touch for more information on The Virtual Community Foundation, Virtual Purpose and our other programmes.
The Virtual Services Group is extremely proud of our association and partnership with our nominated charity, The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation.
The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation (LCTF) was established to raise awareness of Vasculitis, an autoimmune disease which affects the blood vessels in the body and can lead to fatal organ damage.
The charity was set up in memory of 15 year old Lauren Currie, who tragically passed away due to the disease in October 2010.
We’re committed to supporting the charity in its efforts to increase awareness and provide practical and emotional support to people with Vasculitis in the UK.
