Communities

Uttlesford is a predominantly rural district covering 56 parishes with a population of over 86,000 residents.  Over 20% of the population are over 65 years of age and this proportion is set to rise sharply in the next 10 years.

On the surface, Uttlesford appears to be prosperous, however there are significant pockets of rural isolation and disadvantage.    CVS Uttlesford is delivering projects in the community to support those residents facing these challenges.

Our strategic aim is to promote, strengthen, nurture and grow a vibrant and sustainable voluntary and community sector in Uttlesford, that addresses the evolving needs and concerns of people who live and work in the district.
