Our Projects

SVS Projects have been developed through consultation with the public and our partners in response to local need. They are funded through a combination of public sector delivery contracts and grants, support from local business, donations from the public, and charitable trust funding.

Our projects would be unable to operate without the added value brought by our teams of dedicated volunteers. Without their goodwill, energy and expertise none of what we achieve would be possible.
