Free Services

We offer a free service to voluntary and community groups in the form of development work which can cover all sorts of issues.

Often we advise groups on funding – where to get funding from; how to complete a particular application form; how to submit a budget. Regularly we support groups on how to set up a new group to run activities or deliver a service needed.

Our advice is offered in a number of ways depending on the development work needed and the group’s circumstances. You can come to the CVS office at Bakewell for a one-to-one meeting; we can come to a meeting of the group; we can offer support by email or over the telephone. This service is free of charge and we encourage all groups using this support service to become members of Derbyshire Dales CVS.
