Barking & Dagenham Council for Voluntary Service (BDCVS) champions civil society in the east London Borough of Barking & Dagenham. We provide practical support to voluntary sector groups and organisations. We work in strategic partnership with the public sector and funders.
We manage a community building, the Ripple Centre in Barking, where we are based. The Ripple Centre is a modern building with versatile meeting and training rooms, office space, and a large function hall.
We have a small staff team, which is led by a voluntary board.
