Harnessing the Power of Volunteers....

Wiveliscombe Area Partnership

"A Community Charity dedicated to Harnessing the Power of Volunteers"

Wiveliscombe Area Partnership - WAP - is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status and is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of community minded residents plus representatives from the Town and District Councils.

WAP operates from the Community Office in the heart of the Wiveliscombe but serves the larger rural area of some 8,000 inhabitants known as The 10 Parishes (see map). WAP has a strong track record in developing and delivering projects that address rural issues. The company has been built around the principles of innovation, co-operation and collaboration. Its development has been supported by the District, County and Parish and Town Councils and it is in a unique position to understand and drive forward rural strategies.

In addition, WAP organises and runs the biennial 10 Parishes Festival plus the annual Wiveliscombe Street Market and Carnival, normally held in September.

Our Mission......... 
"The Social, Economic and Cultural Prosperity of the Community
‚Äčand all who live in it"
