Information, advice, support, and training to help charities and community groups develop trusted services in our community.
EVA supports people who want to start a new community group, and people from established groups who want to develop their organisation or have encountered an issue they cannot resolve alone.
During the coronavirus crisis we continue to provide our advice & support service – via phone, email, and online video calling – recruiting, registering, and placing volunteers, supporting good governance and safe practice, and helping to maximise resources for trusted work in our community.
EVA hosts specialist training courses, workshops and events delivered by our own staff or by trusted partners to help community groups develop their staff, volunteers and trustees.
