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.



The Jobs Hub project, set up in April 2013 to support local people on their journey to employment, has been very successful and continues to grow. Sessions are now delivered across three community sites. There are 189 members registered at the Bourne Jobs Hub, 108 at the Poole Jobs Hub and 33 at the Upton Jobs Hub. A total of 108 people have been supported back into employment or signposted to training and volunteering opportunities.

Social Prescription Service

This new service launched in January 2015. With this service, patients can be prescribed various activities instead of, or as well as, medicines. Find out more on their website.
