Welcome to Basildon, Billericay & Wickford CVS



A few weeks ago at the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic we sent out a short survey to see where you were and if we could offer any help. As time has moved on we would love an update to how organisations  are coping and to see the bigger impact the pandemic has had on our community.

The purpose of this survey is to take a snapshot of how well or not the voluntary sector is responding to the current crisis. Both National and Local governments cannot afford to overlook or undervalue the VCFSE (Voluntary, Community, Faith & Social Enterprise) sector at the moment. As we navigate the worst impacts of the coronavirus outbreak, people across the country are relying on VCFSE organisations, the essential support they provide and how they shape our society for the better. Governments and Health services will continue to rely on our experience now, in acute crisis, and as we move on to the recovery effort that lies ahead.

We appreciate these are very busy times for us all, but we ask that you take 10 minutes to complete this important survey. This will allow us to raise the requirements needed for a thriving robust sector at both a local and national level.

Your feedback matters!

Basildon Billericay and Wickford CVS 

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.

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.

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.
