Established in 1875, Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service (NCVS) aims to improve the quality of people’s lives in Nottingham by strengthening the voluntary and community sector.
Our support includes providing quality training, plus one-to-one advice and guidance on funding, governance, policy development and volunteer management. We actively promote volunteering and community action, supporting local charities and community groups to find the most appropriate volunteers, attract skilled staff and trustees, and to share stories about their work.
We play an important role in helping to facilitate representative partnerships which fully recognise the strengths, challenges and interests of our diverse local voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector. Together, our networks are a voice for the voluntary sector, in local, regional and national policy planning and development, leading to improved service delivery for all communities.
