Become a member

Cornwall VSF is the voice of the voluntary sector in Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly.

Any voluntary, community or social enterprise (VCSE) organisation working or based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly can be a member of Cornwall VSF for free. Our membership offers fantastic benefits including:

  • Exclusive news bulletin
  • Charity Search Tool
  • Discounts and priority booking for VSF events
  • Discounted posting for your job adverts 
  • Access to our library of resources in the Knowledge Bank
  • Priority publishing for your organisation’s news stories on the VSF website news page and community noticeboard
  • A listing in the membership directory section of the VSF website
  • Amplification of your marketing messages with Case Studies and other PR support

If your organisation does not fit the criteria above, you can still apply to become an associate member. This is suitable for organisations, businesses and individuals that work closely with the voluntary sector in Cornwall but are not registered as a charity, community organisation or social enterprise. See Associate Membership, below.

Please note that by applying to become a member of Cornwall VSF, you also give your consent to be added to our mailing list for the daily news bulletin member benefit. You will be able to opt out at any time.

How to apply

Organisation membership

If you are registering your organisation for the first time, please fill out the entire form below. Give us as much detail as you can, as this is the information that will be used to populate your organisation’s page in our member directory, and will help people find you, and the services you offer.

(If you are not sure whether your organisation is a member, please search in the list. We need a single primary point of contact in any organisation, but can send newsletters to more than one person.)

If your organisation is already a Member, please just fill in the first few lines of the form, and we will include you in the mailing list for the newsletter, without creating a whole new page for your organisation. You will also be able to set up a login for yourself, to submit a job application form, or edit your organisation’s page.

Once you have submitted the application form, you will be redirected to a registration page for the website. Here you will set a username and password for the VSF website. You will need this to access member services, discounts, priority booking and Knowledge Bank.

Associate members

Associate members receive free access to the VSF daily newsletter, and access to the Knowledge Bank on our website, but not the other benefits.  This is appropriate for individuals, public sector employees, consultants, professionals who work with the charity sector (eg. lawyers, accountants) and voluntary organisations whose remit does not cover Cornwall.

If you or your organisation wish to become associate members, please use this form.
