AFVS as Community Interest Company (C.I.C.)

darylmartin4We are excited to advise you that AFVS has now converted to a Community Interest Company (C.I.C.) and have re-launched under the name Advice For the Voluntary Sector CIC.

So, what does this mean for our members?

We are now working closer with our Partners and Charity Specialists to expand and tailor the services we offer. These new services include: Fundraising Training & Guidance, Charity Away Days, HR Training Packages and Leadership Workshops.

We have also extended our free membership to charities with an annual income of under £25K (up from 10K), enabling a greater number of small charities to benefit from our advice and services.

We are here to listen, advise and provide practical help and solutions.
