PCVS - Peterborough Council for Voluntary Service - Making Lives Better!

Welcome to the Peterborough Council
for Voluntary Service

Peterborough Council for Voluntary Service (PCVS) is a registered charity set up by local organisations in 1980 as an umbrella and network organisation to the voluntary sector in Peterborough.

Local charities, voluntary and community groups, self-help groups and statutory organisations can access our services as well as members of the public.

We also manage projects.
PCVS also manages a number of projects at the Centre in Lincoln Court. Many of the projects have been hosted by PCVS since their start. The organisation also responds to 'one off' projects and start up projects with the view to enabling them to become independent within time.

For more information about each of the current projects please click on the relevant link:

PCVS is the lead body for the Peterborough Infrastructure Consortium. For more information go to Services.

PCVS Community Research Questionnaire

Whether you are thriving or surviving, please participate. PCVS wants to learn from your challenges and successes, share experiences and continue to connect people to the wonderful life-changing support that we have in this City. Our questionnaire asks about who you are, what you do and what you need. We are encouraging all groups and organisations to speak up about what is currently affecting you and your beneficiaries and share your aspirations with us so that PCVS can find ways to help you reach goals.
