Lancaster District Community and Voluntary Solutions (LDCVS) provides guidance, co-ordination, representation and development support to the voluntary community faith and social enterprise sector across the Lancaster District and has been the main umbrella organisation for the last 40 years. Our core work supports collaboration through partnership meetings; shared learning through events; training and funding advice; volunteer support and resources, particularly to organisations that work within our most deprived communities. We help organisations that support people and their communities in these target areas that are likely to experience other barriers, directly or indirectly.
