Description Aims and Objectives
The Guernsey Voluntary Service is committed to being the premier provider of support and assistance to the community wherever the need arises. This is primarily through the Day Centres at Jubilee Day Centre and The Russels, Parish Social Clubs for retired people, distribution of Meals on Wheels, Trolley Shops in residential homes and a blood donor calling service at the PEH.
The GVS is a company limited by guarantee.
Organisation and Management
The GVS Manager is appointed by the Board of Directors and is responsible to them for the efficient running of the Guernsey service.
In addition there are six part-time paid members of staff; the Day Centre Manager and her assistant are responsible for the running of the Jubilee Day Centre, and the Administrator is responsible for the office and accounting matters.
Team Leaders organise the various voluntary activities.
The GVS receives a grant from the States of Guernsey but still has to raise a considerable sum through charges, donations and fundraising events to meet other running costs.
