Barking & Dagenham CVS is the umbrella organisation for the voluntary and community sector in Barking & Dagenham (including social enterprises and faith organisations). We promote and support the sector, helping it to be autonomous, effective, influential, flexible, responsive, value based, community led and well resourced.

We work at a strategic level to promote and represent the interests of the sector, and provide practical support and direct services to organisations and the people who run them.

We also manage the Ripple Centre a modern venue located in east London that sits on the border of the Barking Abbey & Town Centre Conservation Area.  Inside the Centre you will find a large hall with stage, two comfortable meeting rooms, a smart boardroom and the ‘Barking Hub’ a spacious open plan area providing desk space that can be rented out on a flexible basis.

Supporting Communities and Organisations

Barking & Dagenham CVS does not claim to be "The Voice" of the voluntary and community sector in Barking & Dagenham. We firmly believe that the sector has many voices, all of them legitimate, and it is this very diversity that gives us our strength. The CVS supports communities and the organisations that represent them to make their voices heard in their own way, and we provide a platform from which all communities are able to influence local policy makers and service providers.

We work with communities to help them identify and assess their needs, and then work with them and other agencies to evaluate and develop the most appropriate means of ensuring that those needs are best met given limited available resources.

Championing the Sector

Barking & Dagenham CVS acts as the bridge between the voluntary and community sector and local strategic bodies such as the local authority, the NHS, the police and the private sector. We champion and promote the work of the sector to these strategic bodies, participate in consultations and lobby for appropriate and sustainable funding for the sector.

Working in Partnership

Barking & Dagenham CVS works with people who are interested in developing voluntary action, whether they be from voluntary, community, statutory or private organisations.

We work in partnership with organisations, which share our vision and values in Barking & Dagenham and neighbouring boroughs.
