Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II attended a reception this evening at St. James’s Palace in London to celebrate the “…50th anniversary of the Community Service Volunteers…” according to Buckingham Palace.
The Community Service Volunteers (CSV) is:
“…the UK’s leading volunteering and learning charity for over half a century. From the northern reaches of Scotland to the southern tip of England, and everywhere in-between, over three million people from across the UK and beyond have embarked on new adventures in their communities to benefit others as part of CSV-led programs.
CSV’s success lies in facilitating social action on a local and national basis, working in and with some of the most deprived communities across the UK. CSV create and promote an innovative range of volunteering and learning opportunities accessible to everyone. Every day CSV makes a difference to people’s lives, supporting families in difficulty, young people in transition to adulthood, disabled and vulnerable adults, and isolated older people.
CSV’s learning projects provide a better chance of employment through apprenticeships, foundation learning courses and innovative social enterprises.”
