West Lancashire Council for Voluntary Service

Supporting voluntary action, empowering local communities


Welcome to West Lancashire Council for Voluntary Service!  The CVS is a charity, and was set up in 1973 to help support and develop voluntary and community groups.  It is the key umbrella group for such groups in West Lancashire today.


This site contains information about the services we can offer to your group, including funding advice,  training, and information.  We also have information on local volunteering opportunities and the latest Local Community News - an online bulletin board for local groups, events and services.




  •  VISIT West Lancs has launched an exciting new competition to find the best leisure walk in Sefton and West Lancashire - win a summer's day canal cruise for 12 people! Click here for more details.    
  •  Community-i : this new website being developed by West Lancs CVS on behalf of One West Lancs, is designed to link people together - enabling funds to be raised for local community activities and services while at the same time helping businesses to raise their profile and promote their products.
