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.

Employer Supported Volunteering

Volunteering is the commitment of time and energy, for the benefit of society and the community, the environment, and others. It is unpaid and undertaken freely and by choice.
Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV) is when organisations actively support and encourage their employees to volunteer. This can take many forms from an employer freeing up time for employees to do their own volunteering, as well as formal ESV programmes.
Whatever form it takes, ESV is becoming more popular as it allows organisations to make a big difference through volunteering.
