That one paint job that just doesn’t get done?

No time to ensure your garden or green space is up to scratch?

Or maybe just some extra hands?

In short, does your organisation need help?

ACOSVO want to give back to you and for our Annual Staff Away Day, we’re inviting members to suggest any ways we can do this. We are flexible around you.

Please contact office@acosvo.org.uk if you have any suggestions or something you'd like a hand with.

Thank you!
