We help vulnerable people with day-to-day living. We also help community groups start, grow and survive against a backdrop of shrinking funds.
To achieve our goals we rely on thousands of dedicated local volunteers. They give their time and skills to make a difference, for example:
- befriending an older person
- running fundraisers or events
- helping at a local playgroup
We are in contact with over 380 voluntary and community groups, who can access a range of services and support (including information and advice, help with funding and governance, training, resource hire) as well as opportunities to meet and network with other organisations through events.
Our Volunteer Centre has over 2,000 registered volunteers and can offer hundreds of rewarding volunteering placements for individuals who want to get involved within their communities.
TTVS also provides services to hundreds of carers, young carers and older people through our dedicated projects.
TTVS is the Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) for Torridge District, incorporating a Volunteer Centre (VC), and has been representing and supporting the voluntary and community sector in Torridge since 1988.
