Community organisations play a key role in enhancing the well-being of neighbourhoods, operating at the heart of the communities. They are typically non-profit entities who provide services, support, and resources to address local needs and promoting and improving community resilience. These organisations can take various forms, including infrastructure Community Voluntary Services, Specialist charitable organisations, Sport Clubs, Group Associations, Church Groups and many more. 

Engaging with these groups and organisations not only helps fulfil your Social Value commitments, but also strengthens community bonds and promotes sustainable development at a local level.

This is a selection of the most prominent infrastructure Community Voluntary Services within the Essex County council boundaries. Their aim is to support and strengthen grass-root voluntary organisations and community groups by cascading opportunities and develop the voluntary sector in their local area.
