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.
