Further Information

More about how AVS works to make a difference in the Selby District

  • Support and Development for Voluntary Organisations or community Groups: We provide free advice and information about most aspects of running and funding a voluntary community group. Our help can be offered through an appointment service where we offer bespoke advice for groups on issues such as getting started, helping with company and charity registration, good governance and assisting with developing Funding Strategies and Action plans.
  • Selby District Volunteer Centre: We provide a central point in Selby District for people to find out about volunteering. We deliver twice weekly drop in sessions at Community House, where people can find out about and select suitable volunteer opportunities or come for information and advice about developing new and existing volunteer involving activities. We also deliver a similar service once a month at Tadcaster and Sherburn in Elmet Libraries. We match individuals wanting to volunteer with organisations requiring volunteer support. We also offer training, support and advice, for new volunteers and volunteer coordinators.
  • Selby District Community Transport: We offer mini bus hire for voluntary and community groups to transport their members on day trips and outings. Our staff also organise a busy Volunteer Car Driver scheme. To find out more about these services please visit our website or telephone us at the number above.
  • Community House: In addition to the services above being delivered from Community House, we also have a range of meeting rooms available for hire.  To find out more about this please get in touch with us. Community House is a successful social enterprise which generates income for our work in developing and supporting the voluntary and community sector in Selby District.
