The 2012 Volunteer Achievement Awards
If you’re involved in a local voluntary or community organisation, then Lancaster District CVS is here to support the work of your group. We work to represent, promote and develop local voluntary and community organisations.
Looking to raise funds? We can offer advice and support. We can also help with training, networking, and financial services.
We work to strengthen the sector, encouraging groups to work together, build partnerships and influence local policy.
We publish the most comprehensive, up-to-date list of voluntary, community and faith sector organisations in the district - click here for more details.
In addition we keep our members updated with our email newsletter, and we administer some small grant funds for community organisations.

Economic Crisis, Need and Voluntary Organisations in the Lancaster District
The research was commissioned by Lancaster District CVS and carried out with funding support from Lancaster University’s Faculty for Arts and Social Science and has recently been used to inform changes to the funding priorities of a local Charitable Trust.
1n the light of the ‘double dip’ recession and austerity measures, we wanted to gauge how individuals in the District who potentially will be most acutely affected by these economic trends are faring at the current time; the impact upon and response from our voluntary, community and faith groups.
