We at CVS Falkirk are pleased to announce we have released our 2017/18 Annual Review.

The Voluntary Sector Children’s Services Forum (VSCSF) will meet for the last time in 2018 on Thursday 29th November, 2pm – 4pm at the CVS Falkirk office, Callendar Business Park, Callendar Road, Falkirk, FK1 1XR.
To celebrate St Andrew’s Day, throughout November Scottish Government are encouraging people in Scotland to do something kind for someone, one small act of kindness, and to share the story and its impact with the hashtag #MakeSomeonesDay. On St Andrew’s Day, Friday 30th November, they will bring all content together on their website to create a “virtual wall of kindness”. The campaign is designed to highlight that not only is Scotland a nice place to live, but that people in Scotland are motivated by the message that kindness matters and makes a difference, and the values surrounding this message.
