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.
