WHO WE ARE


We are the local Council for Voluntary Services (CVS) – the umbrella body for the voluntary and community sector in Southwark.

What we do

We support charities, community groups and individuals through capacity building, volunteering and social action.

We are here to enable others to take steps to change and improve things in Southwark. This applies to people who want to make a change in their local area, or to people who want to volunteer, or to voluntary and community groups that need a helping hand.


Our Vision

We strive for a Southwark in which all communities and individuals can fulfil and exceed their potential.


Our Mission

We empower local people and voluntary organisations, with the tools they need, to work together in creating a borough that works for everyone.


Our Values
