Join us...Become a member of York CVS

Full Membership

Following our Annual General Meeting in December 2020, we’ve made a few changes to our membership. We now ask voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector organisations who we work with to join us as Full Members, and we ask individuals, businesses and public sector organisations, who wish to be kept informed and involved in the work we do, to join us as Supporters.

What are the benefits of becoming a Full Member of York CVS?

Cost: Free

As well as joining a network of hundreds of local voluntary, community, and social enterprise (VCSE) sector organisations, becoming a Full Member of York CVS also gives your organisation access to:

  • The latest VCSE training and voluntary sector forums;
  • Free funding alerts and guidance;
  • Access to Members only training;
  • Regular Members’ Update e-newsletters – providing you with the latest news and resources to help your VCSE organisation to thrive;
  • A members’ only section on our website containing training videos, guidance documents and ‘how to’ guides (coming soon);
  • Voting rights at our AGM to help shape the services we deliver in the future!

York CVS advocates on behalf of our members and York’s VCSE sector as a whole. By engaging with our members and working in partnership, we aim to positively influence strategic decision making, challenge local issues and tackle inequalities. The more members York CVS has, the stronger the VCSE sector’s voice is within York!

Membership to York CVS is free and signing-up is easy. Just read our Membership Criteria and complete the online form below.
