About Involve

We are Mid Devon’s Council for Voluntary Service, supporting and promoting voluntary and community action across Mid Devon. Involve is a Charitable Incorporated Association (CIO). Involve aims to help communities in Mid Devon to be more resilient, improving the lives of citizens. We support existing and evolving charities, voluntary organisations, and community groups across Mid Devon and further the development and sustainability of local voluntary and community action in Mid Devon. We work with individuals, groups and organisations to promote, support and develop capacity and services in the community and to help individuals to feel they are valued members of their community with something meaningful to contribute.

Our Vision

Our vision is that together with our voluntary sector and communities we help strengthen well-being, resilience and quality of life throughout Mid Devon in a dynamic and responsive way.

Our Aims

To help develop strong and informed communities with a VCSE sector which is valued and meets the needs of the community.

To provide opportunities and support to enable people to participate and feel a valued member of their community

To enable people to connect with services in their community.

To raise our profile across Mid-Devon communities to best fulfil these aims

We do this through:

  • Developing the capacity, skills and knowledge of groups throughout Mid Devon;
  • Connecting groups to facilitate and promote joint working;
  • Building the influence of the sector and helping people to become active in their community.
  • Running projects to support the wellbeing of people within our communities

We employ twelve members of staff, and growing, across activities that include community development, service delivery, support for people with learning difficulties and youth projects.
