About us

Since 1939, York CVS has supported thousands of local charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises to focus on what they do best –  making a difference.

We provide a range of support, training and advice to help organisations set up, flourish and even finish if they feel their work is done.

Organisations we have worked summarise our work as:

  • Essential
  • A rock of stability
  • Supportive
  • A family
  • Reliable
  • Providing peace of mind
  • Essential

We aim to be at the heart of the local voluntary sector, empowering local people to change local lives. We speak out for the voluntary sector and represents the sector at a local and regional level and through Volunteering York we support hundreds of people to volunteer for a wide range of local organisations every week.
