Arran CVS was established in 1965 to co-ordinate voluntary effort on the Island of Arran.
We are a local charitable organisation that provides a range of information and office services to voluntary and community organisations operating on Arran. In addition, we provide some short-term projects which address identified local needs where gaps in support exist.
In 2010, a partnership was formed with The Ayrshire Community Trust (TACT) known as the Third Sector Interface (TSI), this supports and represents North Ayrshire third sector generally, across all policy areas with involvement at both a local and national levels, providing an interface between the island community, local government, regional, national, and other bodies. The TSI vision is of improved quality of life for the people and communities of North Ayrshire and Arran by building a strong, effective, and sustainable Third Sector.
The service is run by a voluntary management committee drawn from its members, consisting of representatives from locally based groups and individual members of the public that are committed to the aims of the Arran CVS.
Based on community feedback, we have created a Resource Register to enable local groups and organisations to share their resources with each other.
This will help us all achieve more together and increasingly make Arran the best place to live it can be! Let us know of any ideas to make the register even more useful by reaching out on our Contact Page.
