Welcome to the Blackpool Wyre and Fylde Council for Voluntary Service website
We are a registered charity and work with groups and organisations in the Voluntary, Community and Faith sector helping to ensure Blackpool Wyre and Fylde has thriving, strong communities providing opportunities to build capacity and enhance effectiveness of the sector. This site contains information about the projects that CVS run and our news pages provide updates on news items, events, funding, jobs etc. We also have a community events diary confirming all the upcoming events across the 3 districts. You can find out more about the history of CVS as well as meeting the staff and trustees and there are also useful links to other local voluntary and community groups.
The key to achieving sustainability is an understanding of diverse and durable funding streams available as well as sound understanding of financial management,strategic planning.
