Community & Voluntary Service

Community & Voluntary Service (CVS) is a support and development organisation, promoting, supporting and encouraging local voluntary activity. We do this by providing a range of services, often in partnership with other members of the Voluntaryworks Consortium.

As a registered charity (Charity number 1091423), the organisation has offices in Bedford but works across Bedfordshire. 

We are supported by a number of funders, including Bedford Borough Council, Central Bedfordshire Council and the Harpur Trust.

See below for a list of our services and events.
