hvoss is a support service for local charities, voluntary organisations and community groups. View our latest annual report here.
We help groups run and operate effectively by offering them training, advice and support. We run the Volunteer Bureau, youth projects, and a community transport service called Community Wheels.
We tell decision makers about the needs of our members, community groups and volunteers.
We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. We employ paid staff and have a team of about 100 volunteers. Our Board of 9 trustees (all volunteers) oversee all the work we do. The Chief Executive is responsible for the day to running of the charity and all its work.
