Community Development

EPNAVCO has a Community Development officer, Joan Evans. Her remit is to help empower groups to meet their maximum potential to improve the quality of life within the communities of Cheshire West and Chester by providing training, advice, support and guidance.

If your group needs help with governance, legal issues, training or any other problem please get in touch.

EPNAVCO provide up-to-date information & advice to develop your group, whether you need help with starting a new group including writing your constitution or becoming a Charity, or developing an established organisation we are here to help.

Information regarding governance can also be found on the Charity Commission website:

Many organisations are concerned about their legal position in having certain policies and procedures in place. Even if it is not a legal requirement it is often good practice to have them. You can find out more information on the Charity Builder website, located here at CBUK is an innovative new way of helping you to comply with Employment and Health & Safety legislation, as well as providing you with tools to simplify other key administrative tasks. This will help you set up essential policies and procedures quickly, easily - and it’s free of charge.

We have factsheets to help and information and development resources that can be used and adapted for your organisation.

If you are new to the charity or non profit sector? Or thinking about setting up a charity, non profit organisation or social enterprise? Information regarding this is also available at

We are happy to look at this with you and provide one to one support if you want it. Have a look at the factsheets and if the information you need is not there please ask.

If you require advice and information, please do not hesitate to contact our Development worker Joan Evans on 0151-370-2960. Or e-mail
