Empowering Communities

visit the website


Lancashire Association of CVS (LACVS) is a partnership of 9 independent, not for profit organisations that work from a network of local offices across the Lancashire sub-region.

LACVS offer practical help to voluntary, communtiy, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) organisations and people that want to volunteer in their communties.

LACVS support voluntary action and connect to local VCFSE organisations that reach into their communities.

This is done because voluntary action empowers communities and changes lives harnessing the local skills, talent and energy that are at the heart of strong and healthy communities.

The services LACVS offer range from supporting volunteering and its tremendous contribution to local life to helping people form and run VCFSE organisations, improve wellbeing and find local solutions.

We can reach into local communities through our connections whilst also being able to work across the whole of the Lancashire sub-region.
