Welcome to Cumbria CVS

Cumbria CVS is a registered charity and membership organisation. We help community/voluntary/not-for-profit groups and organisations to develop and improve by providing training and services that can be 1:1 support, funding advice, bespoke training, or through our regular training courses.

We help place volunteers throughout Cumbria, and work with groups that involve volunteers to follow best practice.


Rebuilding Together

The Big Lottery Fund has announced a £1 million package to help Cumbrian communities become more resilient. This comes in the wake of December’s devastating floods, and will help local people, communities and organisations to prepare for similar events in the future.
