We are compiling an audit of our local organisations that can support a community effort to overcome and support the public during this Covid-19 crisis. We are experiencing a high demand and it is essential for us to come together. We are performing an audit to establish the resources we can all draw upon.
Please provide your response ASAP and share with as many organisations as possible.
We thank those that have already taken the time to complete the audit. Your information will help shape the help we provide.

Basildon Billericay and Wickford CVS (Council for Voluntary Service) 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.
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.
Basildon Billericay and Wickford CVS 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.
