Objectives

1. Direct Support

Review and refine our capacity building services for the VCFSE sector to ensure they are inclusive, effective, efficient, and based on need. We will enable and support a sustainable VCFSE sector that can thrive. 

2. Influencing

Connect and develop strong relationships throughout the VCFSE, NHS, Statutory and Commercial Sectors where we can champion and promote our sector. We will use our knowledge and reputation to influence decision makers and enable growth of partnerships and increase collaboration.

3. Belonging 

We will provide services where individuals and communities feel connected, listened to and supported. Residents are invested in their community and help each other. 

4. Independence

We provide services that ensure our residents and our VCFSE sector have access to the right resources to enable them to remain independent. 

Activities

North Herts & Stevenage Centre for Voluntary Services (NH&SCVS) is a dynamic and impactful infrastructure charity dedicated to championing and supporting the voluntary, community, faith, and social enterprise sector (VCFSE). With a steadfast commitment to driving positive change, NH&SCVS provides essential support and resources to non-profit organisations, ensuring they operate efficiently, sustainably, and legally.

Our Projects

As well as providing a range of information, services and support for voluntary and community groups, we also manage several local community projects across Hertfordshire. 

GoVolHerts

A countywide service providing information for those who want to volunteer, and for voluntary organisations looking to recruit, retain and manage volunteers.

Reach Out Hertfordshire

A project that provides companionship and practical support to older people who are medically vulnerable and at risk of hospital admission or have recently been discharged from hospital.

Community Transport

This vital service uses a dedicated team of volunteers who all use their own cars to transport passengers to healthcare appointments at hospitals, clinics and surgeries, in addition to dental appointments, day centres and exercise / physio classes etc.

Breakaway Playschemes

Our playschemes provide short term respite for parents and carers of children with additional needs. They offer stimulating play and quality care, tailored to meet the needs of children and young people aged 5-19 in Hertfordshire.

Staying Connected

This project seeks to eradicate digital poverty throughout Hertfordshire. Unwanted devices, such as laptops and tablets, are being donated across Hertfordshire to help vulnerable people get online and stay connected with the support of a trained volunteer.
