Who we are – strengthening communities, supporting individuals

LCVS is a charity working to support individuals and groups to build strong communities. We promote volunteering through our four accredited Volunteer Centres, matching would-be volunteers with their perfect opportunity and supporting volunteer involving organisations to recruit, train and retain volunteers.

Our local community development teams offer advice, guidance and support to help community projects and groups get established, survive and thrive.

The LCVS Healthy Living Team offers health advice and support via individual, group and remote sessions. It also offers workplace health packages and guest speakers.

Being at the heart of our communities, listening to their needs and speaking up for them is our driving force. We work with partner agencies and authorities to deliver specific projects where our experience and connections are called upon.
