What we do


Southend Association of Voluntary Services – What we do


SAVS is an independent charity known as a council for voluntary service or CVS. That means we work behind the scenes to help local charities and community groups achieve their full potential.

We do this by:

  • supporting them with training, advice and practical help
  • helping them raise money and spend wisely
  • keeping them informed about changes in the charity sector
  • bringing them together to exchange ideas
  • representing their views to local government, funding bodies and others

If you would like to get in touch please contact us.

We also maintain a Community Support Directory which we update monthly. The directory gives details of and contact information for support groups for both individuals and organisations.

You can view the directory online by clicking here.

As always we welcome your feedback ideas and suggestions, please contact SAVS on 01702 356000 or email rsavage@savs-southend.co.uk
