About Us

Cambridge GET Group is an umbrella infrastructure support group for member organisations in the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) who offer guidance, employment and training (hence ‘GET’) to unemployed or otherwise disadvantaged people.  Its core activities can be best described by the acronym ‘FAINT’ – Funding, Advocacy, Information, Networking and Training.


Established in February 1989 by a group of 6 organisations and funded by Cambridge City Council, Cambridge GET Group was incorporated in 1998.  It now has 50+ 'Full' Members (VCS organisations) & 7+ 'Associate' Members (non-VCS organisations and statutory bodies eg. FE colleges, City/County/District councils.)  The Company has an elected Board and Members’ meetings are held around every six weeks.
