CVS South Gloucestershire

Our Vision
A BS15 where social isolation is replaced by strong community, food inequality is eliminated, and residents feel supported and valued.

Our Mission
We aim to create spaces where everyone feels safe and welcome. We listen, support, provide affordable food, and offer chances to learn and share skills and meet new people, ensuring everyone feel valued and empowered.

Our Values
We are…
Inclusive, Accepting, Supportive, Caring, Honest, Responsible, Respectful, Fun, A Team

Our Work
We run four projects:

  • The Kingswood Kitchen offers hot meals, for delivery or collection, on a pay-as-you-can basis
  • The Beacon is our pay-as-you-can community cafe serving breakfast, lunch, homemade cakes, and great coffee.
  • Our allotment, Trinity Food Garden, is used to promote gardening and wellbeing activities.
  • The Kingswood Food Club distributes to those struggling financially, and promotes wellbeing to those struggling mentally.


Over 450 local residents benefit from these projects each week, but that’s not all we do. In 2023 we worked with Friends of Kingswood Park to delivery the Coronation celebrations in Kingswood Park, and partnered with the RBL to bring back Remembrance Parade in Kingswood. On a few hours notice we opened a temporary emergency night shelter during a period when there was a spike in the number of rough sleepers.

We are at the heart of the BS15 Community and are always looking for more ways in which we can work together for a better future for all in BS15.
