Did you know that there are around half a million voluntary and community organisations in the UK, of which about 70% are active at a local level? Across Essex there are around 10,000 – all committed and passionate about what they do.
Basildon benefits from the work and activities of a rich variety of voluntary and community organisations. Hundreds of groups and individuals all contribute to giving their communities a better quality of life.
Basildon, Billericay and Wickford CVS works with a multitude of charities and voluntary groups and we add information about them onto the EssexConnects Online Directory. The Directory is an up to date, searchable database of voluntary and community organisations serving the area and is growing all the time.
