On 14th December 2023, Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale Council for Voluntary Service (BPRCVS) is officially opening the brand-new Volunteering for Wellbeing & Community Hub at Gannow Community Centre.
Doors open at 10 a.m. for people to drop in and discover the world of volunteering. With a wide range of voluntary organisations in attendance, you’ll be able to discuss what their voluntary roles require and how to go about getting started giving something back to your local community.
Thanks to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, a brand-new volunteer hub launched this summer. The Volunteering for Wellbeing and Community Hub is the latest volunteering project from the volunteering experts, Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale Council for Voluntary Service (BPRCVS).
BPRCVS is continuing its investment in volunteer coordination for both individuals, and local Voluntary, Community, Faith, and Social Enterprise (VCFSE) groups and organisations. The appointment of dedicated volunteer coordinators will provide tailored volunteer coordination and open up exciting new opportunities and experiences for people looking to get involved in their community.
You’re cordially invited to join BPRCVS at our Annual General Meeting on Thursday, 23rd November 2023. This year we’re hosting our AGM at Colne Town Hall and all members, service users, and VCFSE groups and organisations are welcome to attend.
Whether you were at the How? Conference this summer or not, it would be worth reading the outcome report which has been produced by analysing the information provided by all of the groups and organisations in attendance.
There are some interesting, and possibly surprising findings. There were a lot of services mentioned throughout the conference that you may not be aware of, or aware of how they've adapted their services in response to the cost-of-living crisis.
Feedback obtained shows the delegates found it to be a very useful and informative event. Some even said it was the best event they'd been to for some time!
Once again, many thanks to those of you who attended and participated in the activities, and to those who helped to facilitate tables and run the event.
