Helping to develop and support community and voluntary groups and organisations

Here at Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale Council for Voluntary Service we live by our motto; helping you to help others. That’s why we have excellent development and support services readily available to all local community groups, charities and voluntary organisations.

BPRCVS offers professional advice on legal, constitutional, financial and organisational issues. As a long-standing, well-established charity and infrastructure organisation we are often asked to manage projects and support the development of new groups.

BPRCVS operates an integrated support approach to provide the very best service possible to our local communities. We have a dedicated, professional development team to help new groups expand and grow or to assist with a project. If your looking to develop your community group or voluntary organisation look no further than BPRCVS. This is the fundamental purpose of any CVS and we're no different.

We are capable of managing a wide range of projects and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon. We will share this knowledge and experience with you and we can deliver specific and customised training that groups require to build capacity. The BPRCVS development officers will work with you to ensure that you are in the best possible position to deliver on your objectives and help the people of our local communities when and where they need it.

This is what we do at BPRCVS – Your local one-stop shop for all things community, charity and voluntary. If we can’t help you we will direct you to someone that can.
