With our CVS partners, working together as Devon Voluntary Action, we have produced a range of information and guidance sheets covering key points on a range of topics as well as links to other useful websites and agencies that can provide specialist advice and support. You can access these guides here.

If you are not sure where to start or want to review your organisation you can download and complete our Organisational Health Check (pdf). It is a self-assessment tool to assist you in identifying what areas the CVS could support you in.
