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.

High Sheriff visits

Cumbria CVS staff and trustees welcomed Alan McViety, High Sheriff of Cumbria, to our Carlisle office recently, to talk about our work and how we can collaborate to support the sector.

Alan’s key focus for his year as High Sheriff is to support “Youth Opportunities”. After a tour of the building and lunch, Alan received a presentation about our work, followed by a discussion and Q&A with staff and trustees.
