Welcome to Basildon, Billericay & Wickford CVS

Basildon, Billericay and Wickford Council for Voluntary Service (BBWCVS) was formed in 1979 as an independent registered charity that exists to promote, develop, support and represent a thriving, effective, voluntary and community sector in the borough.

Our work and mission

We are guided by values that promote equality of opportunity, participation, cooperation, partnership and democratic involvement. We promote local voluntary and community action in order to combat poverty and disadvantage, and to improve the quality of life for all of Basildon’s communities and citizens.

We do this by providing a range of services to meet the needs of voluntary and community organisations, helping those that are starting up as well as organisations that are already established. We also support joint working between voluntary and community organisations, with business, and the statutory sector, and help to make sure the interests and concerns of the VCS are well represented.

You can find out more about the impact of our work in our annual reports.

The BBWCVS is registered charity 1148943 and a company limited by guarantee 8028602. We are governed by trustees who are nominated and elected by our members.

We are a member of NAVCA (National Association for Voluntary and Community Action) and EACVS (Essex Association of Voluntary Services) as we believe it is important to share information, disseminate good practice and influence decision-making that affects our sector.

In summary we aim to make a real difference to the people and communities of Basildon. If you share this vision and want to help us on this journey you can join our growing membership.
