10th August 2021

It is with much sadness that we have to announce the closure of Corby Voluntary and Community Services from 30th September, 2021.

As you will probably be aware, we have been facing tremendous difficulties over the past year with the pandemic, the T.A. building being sold and the sad loss of our treasurer, coupled, crucially, with an inquorate board for significant periods of time. This has made the struggle to remain relevant within the community and to keep our services running an insurmountable task.

We would like to thank all our members of staff for their years of service and support, especially since the beginning of the year. We have all worked long and hard to try to weather a succession of tough events but, ultimately, the task was beyond our capabilities.

We would also like to thank all the other people who have made CVCS a great place over the years – the organisations who have rented space, the volunteers who gave up their time to help both us and a myriad of other community organisations and our service users. You were all part of our CVCS family and we will miss you all.

This means that Shop Mobility will no longer be available after 24th August, 2021. We are trying to keep the vital service that is Corby Car Pool running in some way but this is by no means guaranteed.

Volunteering services are available from Community Action Northants

We would be looking for volunteers over the next couple of months to help us clear the building; if this is something you feel able to do, then please give us a ring on 07385924343 or email board@corbyvcs.org.uk. We would be very grateful for any help.

For general enquiries and car pool enquiries, please send us an email
