SPARK is the operating name for East Sussex Council for Voluntary
Youth Services, an organisation originally established in 1974. Recently
it became a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. In
2013 it was rebranded as ‘SPARK – A network for young people’s organisations.‘
The SPARK vision is to enable children and young people to develop
their social, physical and personal characteristics to grow as
individuals and contribute to society. They do this by supporting groups
and individuals who work directly with them.
