hvoss (Herefordshire Voluntary Organisations Support Service)


We are a partnership project supporting local communities throughout Hereford City. The project is a partnership of hvoss (Herefordshire Voluntary Organisations Support Service) and Close House, two active and well established voluntary sector organisations. We work with all people of Hereford and have particular projects with young people and people from ethnic communities.

We can offer: support for newly-constituting community groups; help with the development of voluntary sector organisations; assistance with funding applications; source training opportunities for groups and individuals to develop their skills; and we also support the growing community event: the HEREFORD CELEBRATION.

Young people and youth groups

HERE FOR the City supports young people across Hereford City to improve their opportunities. We can provide training, help with funding bids for specific projects, advise young people about starting up a youth group or any other matters that may arise.

We also support organisations and communities who work with young people, increase provision for them and engage them in community life.

We have worked closely with a number of other organisations who work with young people, not only with specific projects, but also in helping to promote the value of young people to our communities.
