Welcome

RRAVS is updating this website regularly to provide the latest Coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak information for the Rochford district.  For support including foodbank access or if you are feeling isolated please call the Community Support Hub – 01268 77 99 99.

rravs logo imageRRAVS’ vision is of a strong voluntary sector which is at the heart of a vibrant and caring Rochford District where people are able to fulfil their potential through voluntary and community action. The Rochford district includes the towns and villages of Rayleigh, Hockley, Ashingdon, Great Wakering, Canewdon, Hawkwell, Rochford, Barling, Fambridge, Paglesham, Rawreth, Sutton, Foulness and Hullbridge.

RRAVS works to promote, support and represent the interests of all voluntary and community groups in the Rochford District. This is achieved through provision of the grants and funding that is available, promoting group activities and events to the wider community, providing subsidised or free training to upskill staff and volunteers, publishing volunteer opportunities and supporting volunteer recruitment and representing the views of the voluntary sector with strategic bodies and local government. We are  also developing our RRAVS Community Directory which provides useful contact information for a wide range of local services provided by our member groups and the wider community.
