A statement from eVOLution...
It is with a heavy heart that eVOLution (Darlington CVS) must close its doors after almost 50 years of service to the voluntary and community sector in Darlington.
With funding streams coming to an end and Darlington Borough Council choosing to commission a reduced model of infrastructure, our Board of Directors has been forced to make the regrettable decision to dissolve eVOLution (Darlington CVS).
eVOLution has worked at the very heart of the community since it began in 1966.
We have provided support and guidance to hundreds of organisations; challenged decision-makers and steered policies on behalf of the voluntary sector; provided leadership; successfully brokered volunteering opportunities for thousands of inspiring residents; promoted the charitable sector, building strong relationships; and taken significant steps toward our vision of a united and collaborative Darlington.
We are committed to continuing to provide a high quality service and to fulfil our contractual requirements until we close our doors in the summer.
We thank you for your support.
Executive Director of eVOLution
