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.


Ward Goodman Chartered Accountants, advisors to the charity sector, are set to host their annual Dorset Charities Conference at the RNLI College in Poole on Thursday 8 May 2014.

The event, now in its third year, will connect charities with leading sector suppliers.

Last year’s event was fully booked with over 125 people in attendance. Please click here for further details.

Dorset Community Foundation has been fortunate enough to receive £32,000 of funding from the Office of Civil Society through their umbrella organisation UKCF.

The funding is to be distributed to help support individuals, families, voluntary organisations and community groups who have been affected by the recent storms and flooding across Dorset between 1 Dec 2013 and 31 March 2014.

Deadline for applications is 1pm on Friday 2 May 2014.

For more information please visit the Dorset Community Foundation website.
