We provide a wide range of services to the local voluntary and community sector in Castle Point. We are heavily involved with the Local Strategic Partnership to ensure the views of the voluntary sector are heard and taken seriously at partnership meetings. We have in the region of 80 - 100 members (local organisations) who receive the full benefit of our services but we regularly inform over 200 contacts about local initiatives, funding streams, training opportunities and meetings or forums etc. It is advisable to visit our website for more details about our services or contact the office and speak to a member of staff. A financial breakdown is available from our office but our funding requirements are in the region of £100,000 per annum some of which is met by local statutory bodies through service level agreements but funding is required meet the shortfall.
