Welcome to Poole CVS

If you are a charity, a voluntary group or a community group working in Poole, we are here to help you.


About us



Poole CVS works in partnership with Bournemouth CVS and Dorset Race Equality Council.

We offer a range of services including:

  • Funding advice
  • Advice on running your organisation
  • Help with finding volunteers

Please note: we can only help groups, not individuals.

We run a Volunteer Centre, which brings together people seeking volunteering opportunities with charities, voluntary and statutory organisations seeking help. You can also see the list of volunteering opportunities here.

Being a member of Poole CVS does not automatically register you for volunteers: you will need to fill in a couple of forms to give the volunteer centre some information about your organisation and your volunteer opportunities.



Public   Health   Dorset   has   appointed   Optum,   a   leading   health and well-being services organisation, to develop a new phone and online hub to help Dorset improve the health and well-being of local residents. This new lifestyle service, called LiveWell Dorset, will act as a single point of contact to help people with their health and well-being, including advising them about smoking, drinking, weight, diet and exercise,  and assisting them to adopt a healthier lifestyle, potentially reducing the risk of developing more serious health issues later in life.

It is due to launch in April.
