PAVO (Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations) have been particularly busy over the last year following the establishment of a Community Sector Emergency Response Team (C-SERT). This comprises county wide organisations that offer volunteer support and emergency response services alongside partners from Powys County Council and Powys Teaching Health Board.

Our own Hay Community Support Volunteers and the Food Bank have both been recipients of financial help and support from PAVO.

 There are a number of volunteering opportunities available via PAVO as well as support to existing or new voluntary organisations. Please have a look at their website for further information.
