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.

“The move to Shaddongate begins an exciting new phase in the life of Cumbria CVS, giving us greater stability, better connections to the communities we work with and stronger partnerships with a wide range of existing and new contacts.”

Said Laura Cadman, Chief Executive Officer of Cumbria CVS.
