The associations people form between and for themselves are at the heart of social participation. Starting up or becoming part of an existing community group, helping to govern a local charity, or volunteering at a water polo club, are just some examples of the collective activities that local people get involved with.

The Centre Supporting Voluntary Action is in regular contact with around 350 voluntary and community groups, clubs and charities that work directly with some of the most vulnerable and hard to reach in the local community.  This ‘voluntary sector’ is a diverse network of networks so connecting with our members is a great place to start if you want to reach out to local people.  

To engage with or consult a broad cross section of voluntary and community groups in Chelmsford City, its villages, and South Woodham Ferrers town please contact the Centre on 01245 351888 to discuss the options available.
