Community Voluntary Services Tendring



Introduction - who are CVST?

'Community Voluntary Services Tendring' is run by the local community to support, promote and develop voluntary and community action.


This can be as simple as holding network breakfasts, or drop in coffee mornings to help build community links, or organising fundraising events such as the ever popular Annual Victorian Christmas Market.




Through our resource centre in central Clacton we also offer advice and information, regular newsletters packed with charity information, beach hut hire, volunteer training, and also two Meeting Rooms available to hire at reasonable rates to local groups.

What are our core functions in more detail?

As a registered charity, we are run by voluntary groups for voluntary groups. The organisation has five core functions: services and support for local community groups; liaison and enabling; representation; and strategic development.

Tendring CVS exists to promote and develop the effectiveness of voluntary and community action by:

l Providing support to groups such as information, advice and training.

l Identifying needs and developing new initiatives to meet them.

l Promoting partnership between the statutory and voluntary sectors in the delivery of services

l Supporting innovation, accountability and good practice in local services.

l Encouraging organisations to put forward their views on local and national policies and decisions.

l Creating and promoting channels used by government and other bodies to consult the community.

l We provide this support in a special way and with particular values: we work with individuals and groups, and with communities in a flexible, open way and challenging inequality and promoting diversity.
