Support Our Work

We want to help as many people in need as we can. Your donations and fundraising will enable us to do that.

Rushcliffe Community & Voluntary Service

❤️ Together We Improve Lives ❤️

We provide opportunities for people to devote their time and abilities as volunteers, to improve the lives of others and to benefit themselves.

Our deep community roots and close connections with scores of local groups enable us to offer the widest possible range of volunteering opportunities.

We also support vulnerable people to thrive in our communities. Our trusted voluntary transport and housekeeping services support independent living, while Transport Plus provides extra help for getting out and about.

We’re proud of the reliability and compassion of what we do. We don’t just tackle social isolation and keep people safe; we offer peace of mind and a friendly face.

Through this bond of trust, we strengthen our local communities, one person at a time. In short, we’re passionate about supporting people to lead happy, fulfilled lives.

As a charity, we rely on the generosity of others to sustain our work. Every donation we receive helps us to continue making that difference.

We are proud to say that we are members of the Rushcliffe Dementia Awareness Network and we have made a commitment to offer Dementia Friends training to all of our staff and volunteers.

People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand to go about their daily lives and feel included in their local community. Dementia Friends is giving people an understanding of dementia and the small things they can do that can make a difference to people living with dementia – from helping someone find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia.

If you would like to become a Dementia friend you can book to join a webinar or live stream here.

  • Many thanks for organising Mum's transport with her driver David for her appointment at the City Hospital It all worked perfectly and Mum was very pleased and confident with the service; she sends her thanks. I would like to reiterate from a daughter's point of view organising appointments in Nottingham from my home base in Manchester, the service is easy and excellent!

  • Everyone at RCVS is so kind and helpful. I'm so grateful for your services and wish I'd known about them before. I've been struggling for over a year but now I feel like I've got my life back!

  • The Befriending Service has been a godsend to me over this pandemic. Even at Christmas being offered a Christmas dinner! It's a wonderful service in the community for vulnerable people. Thank You!
