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.

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.





Commons Research Notes on Community Assets

The House of Commons Library has produced a research briefing on the community right to bid  for ‘assets of community value’, introduced by the Localism Act 2011. This discusses the workings of the scheme and related options with regard to community land and buildings.


NVCO report indicates voluntary organisations under pressure due to welfare reforms
