At Teignbridge Community and Voluntary Services, we support our local charities, voluntary groups, and social enterprises in Teignbridge to build a stronger community. We work to empower local communities to come together and take collective action that provides solutions to meet common problems by:

  • Working with communities to find and deliver their own solutions

  • Enabling communities to have a strong voice locally and further afield
  • Supporting communities and voluntary and community groups to come together to share knowledge and spread expertise
  • Supporting the development of leadership in our communities
  • Promoting Active Citizenship across Teignbridge
