Services we provide for the Voluntary and Community Sector

CVSU’s primary purpose is to support the voluntary sector in Uttlesford. We do this by providing a range of professional specialist services and advising on a range of issues including funding, governance and set up. We also have an important role in disseminating information.

Specialist Information

We provide specialist information and support to enable local people to develop the skills needed to run successful voluntary groups

Funding Streams

We work with groups to identify funding streams and give support through the whole application process.

Partnership Working

We encourage partnership working to develop new and maintain existing local projects to help strengthen communities

Help for Public Bodies

We help public bodies to engage effectively with local voluntary organisations and community groups, and ensure policy makers understand the needs of disadvantaged and minority groups

Good Practice

We spread good practice, encourage joint working, and identify duplication of effort.

Monitor Existing Services

We monitor existing services and work with local people to identify unmet need, working with a range of agencies to address this.

Project Work

CVSU is now involved in a number of projects, both as a way to fulfill unmet need in the District and to diversify our income
