Welcome to Bolton CVS


Bolton CVS is a charitable company which exists to support voluntary and community organisations and positively promote voluntary action in Bolton.  Our vision is of a sufficiently resourced and sustainable voluntary and community sector which successfully meets the diverse and changing needs of the people of Bolton.

Our website provides the latest information, news and opportunities for our online community - providing an up-to-date resource to assist with your work and activities.

One Week Closure of Bolton CVS – 18th to 22nd August
The annual income of Bolton CVS has reduced for the current financial year and it has been necessary for the trustees to agree reductions in expenditure. Following consultation, all members of staff have very generously agreed to take one week of unpaid leave as a contribution towards ensuring that the necessary savings targets are met. The week of unpaid leave will take place from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd August and the Bolton CVS offices will be closed for the whole week.

The Bolton Hub, however, will remain fully open during this time. The Bolton CVS offices and the Bolton Hub will both be closed on Bank Holiday Monday, 25th August, and will re-open as normal from Tuesday 26th August onwards.

On Line Resources are Here for Everyone!
Although the Bolton CVS offices are closed we can still offer a wide range of on-line resources to help meet your needs.
