Our experienced Membership Services Team can offer
advice and support covering all aspects of running your group.
We have written a series of information sheets and resources that can get you started if you feel confident on your own. If you would like to talk through any queries, or would like some support forming your group, then our team can support CVS Members with information, advice and guidance via the phone, email or in person.

We also recommend Your Space - a series of network sessions managed by CVS, that enables Voluntary, Community & Faith organisations to come together to learn, connect and share information and experiences. Please click here to find out more.
