Volunteering Matters

Who we are

Community Service Volunteers (CSV) is a UK volunteering and social action
charity. We believe that everyone should be able to play an active role in their
community so we can make society stronger and more inclusive.
In the 2013/14 financial year we engaged 80,000 volunteers who supported 180,000 beneficiaries
including families in difficulty, children at risk of neglect or harm, young people in care, disabled and
vulnerable adults or older people. They also took part in environmental projects

At Volunteering Matters we believe everyone in the UK should have the opportunity to thrive

So we bring people together to overcome some of society’s most complex issues through the power of volunteering.  

We partner with communities to overcome adversity, tackling social isolation and loneliness, improving health and wellbeing, developing skills, confidence and opportunity and making sure young people can lead change. And because we’re a national charity, we do this at scale, sharing our expertise and building partnerships to make an even bigger impact.

We turn local knowledge and energy into action and progress, building stronger communities and a better future for all.

Based on the impact our volunteers and programmes have in communities across the UK, we will bring people together through volunteering to build stronger communities so that everyone has an opportunity to thrive.
