Although RSVP West is part of the national charity ‘Volunteering Matters’, it is totally financially independent. We have no salaried staff and deliver outstanding value for money.

For this reason, we have our own local charity (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) ‘Friends of RSVP West Region’. Its sole purpose is to obtain the funds needed to support the activities of RSVP West’s volunteers in Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Bath & North East Somerset.

Expenditure covers office rent and other costs plus volunteers’ expenses. ‘Friends of RSVP West Region’ has its own bank account into which all donations are gratefully received.

If you would like to make a donation or provide support in kind, please contact the Regional Coordinator.

Cheques for any amount will be gratefully received – if your donation were to be accompanied by a signed Gift Aid form, that would help us even more by allowing us to recover the tax from HM Revenue & Customs.
