Support

We help you and your community achieve positive social change

How we do this

Community CVS offers a wide variety of services tailored to helping people with specific needs in order to enable them to live healthier, happier lives.

Community CVS trains a bank of volunteers who are then able to support those within our community who require extra help. We also provide and signpost to tailored volunteering opportunities for people who require extra support.

In addition, we also host services which provide specific advice & support.
