Great safeguarding resource for voluntary & community groups

Click on the link to see the NSPCC’s resource to help groups implement and review safeguarding procedures. It is definitely worth printing out and having a copy in front of you- https://www.nspcc.org.uk/services-and-resources/research-and-resources/2017/are-they-safe/ 

ITS NEARLY TIME!

Only 5 sleeps until our ECVYS AGM and 2 course supper (kindly provided by the Guides). If you are coming along then please email Sharon asap so that we can make sure there will be enough food.

If you are  member and are coming along then we would love you to bring a pop up banner and some promo with you too so that we can display the work of our members.

…..There will also be the chance on the night to win a signed David Essex shirt so don’t miss out!!

ECVYS New Constitution

Posted on Updated on

Dear Members, we are currently going through the process to become a charity- yayy! We hope that by becoming a charity we can open up more opportunities and developments for ECVYS and the voluntary youth sector in the future.

This means that our current constitution needs to change slightly so that it is in line with charity guidance. The constitution now looks like a very long document but our core aims have not changed. Our main purpose is still ‘To improve the quality of life and the personal and social development of young people primarily but not exclusively aged 11-25′.

As a member lead organisation we will need to vote on our new constitution at our AGM on the 14th June so please have a read of our NEW CONSTITUTION HERE and email rachel@ecvys.org.uk if you have any comments that you would like to make.

Thank you once again for your support – Rachel, ECVYS Director
