Many of us have been working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. It can bring both benefits and challenges and at CVS we have been discussing how to strive for a work-life balance: here are a few wellbeing issues to think about if you do work from home.

One of our key aims is to actively represent a strong voice for the Voluntary Sector and its volunteers with local and national partners. We work with our organisations and our partners to influence service delivery and address issues.

Voluntary Sector North West’s Regional Sector Trends Survey – we need your input!

Passion for Learning has recently joined CVS Cheshire East as part of their expansion to support children at Knutsford primary schools. They are a volunteer organisation whose aim is to inspire vulnerable children to learn, achieve and become literate, helping them fulfil their true potential as adults. Volunteers are recruited from the community to work with children individually or at their network of after school Enrichment Clubs.  

The #NeverMoreNeeded campaign has emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic, with several charities and infrastructure organisations giving their backing to raising awareness of all the wonderful – and essential – support that the voluntary and community sector has given during this time.

At CVS, we have also been supporting this campaign on our COVID-19 sector impact pages.

If you are a Volunteer Manager or Coordinator for your organisation, have you signed up to be part of our FREE Volunteer Managers Network? 

The Volunteer Managers Network meetings are held quarterly throughout the year. They give volunteer managers the opportunity to meet others in similar roles from organisations across Cheshire East to network, create links and partnerships, and share best practice. 

The Free Wills Month initiative returns in October and is fast approaching. Following on from Remember a Charity Week, now is a good time to encourage your supporters to think about leaving a legacy to support your work, at the same time as taking advantage of the free wills offer.
