About us

TTVS was established as a registered charity over 32 years ago, and since then had provided the lead for volunteering throughout the Torridge area.

Over the years we evolved and grew into a highly regarded community resource, dedicated to supporting groups and individuals who strive for positive change in our diverse communities.

Through innovation and strong collaboration TTVS aims to be central in supporting our communities to thrive, by developing and creating opportunity and raising capability. Through strong leadership we seek to empower our communities and people living and working within Torridge to achieve their aspirations and be the change they want to see.
