CVA receives national recognition

NCVO volunteer centre service logo (small)CVA has received formal recognition for its work as a Volunteer Centre by being awarded Wave 4 Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation (VCQA) measures a Volunteer Centre’s ability to deliver its services to a high standard and create a local environment in which volunteering can flourish.

The standard recognises our achievements in matching people who want to volunteer with organisations who can use their help and advice, promoting volunteering, and helping local charities and other organisations to involve volunteers in their work,

We are delighted to have achieved Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation and are proud that NCVO believes we’re providing a high-quality service. Now we can build on our good work in the local area, helping people and organisations.

Anyone interested in volunteering is very welcome to contact us for advice. Please also look at the opportunities listed on

We are one of over 200 Volunteer Centres across England. A list of VCQA-accredited Volunteer Centres can be found at:
