Hello and welcome to our website which we hope you will find interesting and informative.
EDVSA’s vision is of a happier, healthier district, where strong and inclusive communities work together to create a better East Devon.
EDVSA works with people and communities in East Devon, helping them to thrive. We do this by working together to:
- Meet needs through community led activity.
- Support and promote voluntary organisations and community groups.
- Develop effective partnerships that improve and extend services.
- Provide an independent voice for the voluntary and community sector.
Currently based in Cranbrook, EDVSA has been supporting local communities in East Devon to thrive for over 15 years.
We work across Devon with many organisations and are partners in Devon Voluntary Action (DeVA) a partnership of 6 CVS, for the benefit of local groups
As a Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) we offer advice and information on a wealth of topics, including funding, governance, resource hire, training and we offer additional activities to support networking across East Devon. We support over 280 local charities and community groups to grow, develop and flourish with their activities.
Our Volunteer Centre provides a matching service for those seeking opportunities and organisations requiring volunteers, we currently have 300 people looking for suitable vacancies to match their skills and others requirements.
