BCVS is now celebrating its 50-year anniversary!

On 8th October, 2021 BCVS Celebrated the work of the team of volunteers that it organised to support Covid Vaccinations at both Larwood and Retford Primary Care Networks (PCNs). The event at Retford Town Hall was spectacular and also extremely friendly.

The BCVS is a highly respected Local Infrastructure Organisation (LIO), working in a large geographical district covering the northern third of Nottinghamshire and beyond. It is a complex district, which, although in Nottinghamshire, has close relationships with other neighbouring areas, in particular, South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire.

The breadth of our strategic work is vast, spanning the NHS ICS (Integrated Care System) areas of South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire and Derby and Derbyshire and Local Authority areas of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. BCVS actively represents the VCSEF (Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise and Faith) sector at over 70 meetings and forums, and in the past year BCVS has been a key player the Bassetlaw response to the impact of COVID-19.

BCVS is a forward thinking and proactive LIO that delivers a range of projects and core infrastructure support to a range of important organisations. A key strength is its collaborative and partnership-based approach that has brought clear outcomes for the VCSEF sector and the communities it serves.
