Nottingham Community & Voluntary Service – Sponsor of the Community Volunteer Award 2023

Established in 1875, Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service aims to improve the quality of people’s lives in Nottingham by strengthening the voluntary and community sector.

The voluntary and community sector is the collective name for local community groups, voluntary organisations, charities, faith groups, social enterprises and community interest companies. You may see this referred to as the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, or VCSE for short.

Some people prefer to use the term civil society, or the social sector, or the third sector. ‘Third sector’ distinguishes our work from the public sector and the private sector. Public sector services are controlled by central or local government e.g. emergency services, healthcare, city/borough councils, education. Private sector businesses are set up to make a profit for their owners and shareholders.

Nottingham CVS supports the voluntary and community sector through:

  • Volunteering: improving the quality of volunteering and breadth of volunteering opportunities across the city;
  • Voluntary sector development: strengthening the voluntary sector’s capacity to help its clients through promoting best practice, funding advice and training;
  • Voices: speaking up for the voluntary sector on issues crucial to its future, and increasing the sector’s access to, and influence upon, decision makers.
