Help you to become ‘Volunteer Ready’ and be best prepared to welcome volunteers into your organisation.

Member organisations of CVS Cheshire East also benefit from our full volunteering support package, plus access to advertising with our press partners, radio and other national websites such as Jobsite and Third Sector.
'Finding new volunteers for our lunch club in Knutsford is notoriously difficult. I was therefore delighted to get two enquires in the first week of using the new CVSCE provided "Volunteer" website and a further enquiry the following week. All these enquiries are being followed up and are all looking very positive. This response far exceeds anything I have experienced before from previous attempts to publicise our volunteer vacancies'
Yvonne Baker, St John's Wood Lunch Club, Knutsford
