Southend’s CVS

SAVS is an independent charity known as a council for voluntary service or CVS. That means we work behind the scenes to help local charities and community groups achieve their full potential.

 

We do this by:

 

  • supporting them with training, advice and practical help
  • promoting the work they do
  • helping them raise money and spend wisely
  • keeping them informed about changes in the charity sector
  • bringing them together to exchange ideas
  • representing their views to local government, funding bodies and others.

 

We’ve been supporting not-for-profit groups in Southend for more than 30 years.
