The Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector (VCSE) is a critical deliverer of life changing services, and an increasingly powerful influence for good across the Borough of Bolton. Bolton 2030 is a vision for the future which sees its people and communities as active, connected and prosperous. Working together the VCSE sector can achieve so much, be a huge voice for change, and play its part in making Bolton the place that we can all be proud of.
Bolton CVS is the member organisation for the VCSE sector which connects, and communicates the aspirations and efforts of this vital sector. Being a member ensures that you can play your part in something truly transformational. Together we can achieve so much more than we would if we worked alone.
Membership is free. We have two levels of membership:
Full Membership is open to any constituted voluntary and community group or organisation based in and operating within the Borough of Bolton which is sympathetic to our mission and values. If you are a social enterprise, full membership is open to you if you can demonstrate that you have a wider accountability to the public via a board of trustees, directors or membership and that all profits are re-invested in your social purpose.
Associate Membership is open to organisations and individuals who are sympathetic to our mission and values but who do not qualify for our full membership. Whilst you may not be a constituted group, or you may not be based in Bolton, we would love to know what your link with Bolton is and so please tell us this in your application for membership.
