Become a member

Bradford CVS is a membership organisation. Our Board of Trustees, the management of the organisation, is made up of nominated representatives from membership organisations. As such it is the members who decide the strategic direction of the organisation.

There are three types of Membership available:

Full membership is open to voluntary agencies working in the Bradford area. Whilst our services are not confined to our members, membership does give certain benefits and rights:

Governance. Our members are an important part of the charity.  Members of Bradford CVS are entitled to nominate people for the Board of Trustees and can vote for trustees at our annual general meeting (AGM). Like many other membership charities we welcome new trustees with skills and time to help us achieve our aims and active members that are able to attend our AGM. Members can also hold us to account and help to influence decisions.

Training discounts. Members are entitled to a discount price on many of our training courses taking place from April onwards.  

Room bookings.  Members will receive a discount on room bookings at the Voluntary Services Centre in Sunbridge Rd, for both daytime and evening meetings, from April onwards.

Partnership deals. Bradford CVS, CNet, Keighley & Ilkley Voluntary and Community Action, Shipley and Bingley Voluntary Services and Volunteering Bradford have come together to offer shared benefits to our members.  So in addition to the benefits above, you can enjoy those offered by our partners to their members.  These include discounts on hiring SBVS community minibuses, lower costs on Volunteering Bradford’s service to promote your volunteering opportunities and more.
