We support community and voluntary groups in Rushcliffe, from advice centres and lunch clubs to wildlife trusts and scout groups. We're here to help and inspire groups and organisations to get started and run professionally. We offer expert advice and assistance with training, fundraising and volunteering, as well as giving encouragement and moral support.
And because we believe in what these groups stand for, we endeavour to represent their views to those who make decisions affecting their work. To get a fuller picture, click on the Services, Projects and Volunteers tabs.

We are always looking for ways to expand our service. We have applied for funding from the Galaxy hot chocolate fund to help us recruit and train more volunteers and market our service more widely. We need your votes please so we can get this funding. Thanks in anticipation.

This timely conference provides an invaluable opportunity for local authorities, armed forces champions, health sector, housing sector and key stakeholders to gain an insight into the Nottinghamshire vision for the armed forces community and how local forces charities and organisations are leading the way to support the resettlement and transition of all veterans and their families. The conference will also allow delegates to share community covenant best practice and examine how local understanding amongst the public of issues affecting personnel and veterans, and their families, can be enhanced.
On Friday 10 February 2017 Carolyn Perry CEO Rushcliffe CVS and Penny Spencer Team Leader Rushcliffe and Gedling Voluntary Transport Schemes represented our organisation at the Civic Dinner. Each year the Civic Dinner focuses on a different aspect of life within Rushcliffe.

Rushcliffe CVS is working with Nottingham North and East Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver a weekly community-based respiratory wellbeing service based in Arnold, for people with COPD and other severe respiratory conditions.
Rebecca Archibald is the service's co-ordinator and works two days a week on the project.
Many people with severe respiratory disease find it hard to manage their condition and can become very isolated, and this can cause low mood, anxiety and exacerbation of their symptoms.
