About us

One East Midlands is the regional network for the voluntary and community sector (VCSE) in the East Midlands.

Its primary business is centred around ‘the alleviation of poverty’ and aims to deliver a range of activities that focus on challenging and changing policies, practices and behaviours to ensure the VCSE are engaged, enabled, active and are not adversely disadvantaged. Within this the One EM Board sees the organisation’s role is to advocate for the voiceless and work to influence those who are disadvantaged.

Our mission statement is to “maximise the role of the VCSE as an influential, valued and equal partner in all policy development”.
