North Lanarkshire CVS Strategy 2021-24

The CVS is value- and mission-led and has many recognised and valued strengths and assets.

It is person - and community-centred  

and promotes inclusion, equality and human rights of its beneficiaries as well as its workforce.

It is responsive to people’s needs  

and - given around 75% of the CVS is locally based - has strong community connections and reach.
