Being the essential link to empowering our community groups, building local partnerships and improving residents’ lives’

We provide a diverse range of services to develop, enhance and empower voluntary and community groups to effectively serve their communities, including:

CVSBEH Summer Conference
After 2 years of hosting our Summer Conference via Zoom, we were excited to have again a jam-packed in-person conference ‘Full Steam Ahead’. More than 70 representatives of local groups and organisations signed up to attend on Thursday, 16 June, at the Nigel Copping Community Building in Stanstead Abbotts. We had a superb line-up of top speakers this year, and were honoured to have Jim McManus, The Director of Public Health for Hertfordshire County Council deliver a passionate speech about the future of health and wellbeing in Hertfordshire!

Digital Skills group in Stanstead Abbotts
Know someone who struggles to send an email, online shop, use video conferencing and much more? On every last Friday of the month apart from August and December, from 10.30 to 12 noon, we host our Digital Skills group at Nigel Copping Community Building in Stanstead Abbotts. This group is a fantastic way for participants to learn what they’ve always wanted to know about technology and how to do basic things online that they have either found difficult or confusing. A very sociable and friendly group where all are invited to attend for free. Those attending should bring along with them their own charged devices that they wish to use. To book, call us on 0300 123 1034 to attend. Click here for more information.
