Our Role

RVS is a hub for organisations wanting to promote their services; for those seeking volunteer help and for those seeking to make links with other organisations in the area, including funders.

RVS is a hub for individuals, those wishing to volunteer and those seeking a service for their needs.

RVS is a partner in projects for Supported Volunteering; for the Homehelp service for cleaning and shopping and for Community Transport via minibus hire and through the provision of the Dial-a-Ride service.

RVS holds a Voluntary Sector Forum (VSF) once per quarter offering a platform for presentations from member organisations and a networking opportunity for attendees.

RVS publishes a quarterly newsletter in both electronic and print formats; distributes a monthly bulletin with the latest news; and circulates daily news and announcements to its e-mailing list as both a service for member organisations and itself.
