About us

Swansea Council for Voluntary Service is the umbrella organisation for voluntary activity throughout the City & County of Swansea, supporting, developing and representing voluntary organisations, volunteers and communities in the County. We work to support and develop the Third Sector by providing a wide range of information, advice and support services and by representing the views of the sector to government and policy makers...




SCVS Volunteer Centre can support you to find the right volunteering opportunity. Book an advice and guidance appointment at our centre, receive telephone assistance to help you decide, or access information through the Volunteering Wales website - we can help.



Help & Support

Looking for support from a voluntary or community organisation? Feel that you don’t have a voice? Need some guidance around volunteering or training? We can help. Whilst much of our work involves supporting voluntary and community organisations in Swansea, we also run a variety of services which help individuals.



Support for Organisations
