CVST is run by the local community to support, promote and develop voluntary and community action.
We do this in a range of ways including holding network breakfasts, coffee drop-ins to help build community cohesion, hosting the Annual Voluntary Sector Conference and Exhibition or organising fundraising events such as the ever popular Annual Victorian Christmas Market.
Through our Community Information Centre in central Clacton, we offer signposting to information and advice, regular newsletters packed with charity information, beach hut hire, training, and also venue hire and meeting rooms available to hire at reasonable rates to local groups.

The Essex Map
The Essex Map is a free tool designed to bring our communities closer together by helping you to find the services, groups, and activities available in your area. The Essex Map isn’t just for anyone though, it was created to promote the work of organisations and individuals who work hard to make our communities better, rather than those who focus on making a profit. Adding a listing to the Essex Map is completely free! To add a listing for your group, activity, or organisation click here.
