North Devon Voluntary Services
Supporting Voluntary Action across North Devon










North Devon Voluntary Services (NDVS) supports voluntary, community and social enterprise type groups across North Devon.  Our mission is to:  

Strengthen and champion the work of local organisations that represent, develop and support voluntary and community action.


Through our Council for Voluntary Services (CVS) role, we support new and existing charities, voluntary and community groups.  We help with information, training, partnership working, development, capacity building, forums, special interest groups and are advocates for the local sector.

As part of our Volunteer Centre work, we help promote local volunteering opportunities and assist volunteers to find suitable roles. We also provide support, information and advice for volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations.

We also host local projects including: Direct Services  helping with befriending, shopping, etc, a Mobility Equipment Loan, and Office Services, in Ilfracombe. We also host North Devon Car Scheme for Torridge Community Transport Association, the North Devon Access to Services Project and the Connected Communities Project . We also work with other CVSs and partners on joint projects.

To contact us, visit our offices in Ilfracombe or Barnstaple or attend one of our outreach drop-ins in South Molton, Lynton or Braunton write to us, telephone or send us an e-mail.
