In response to the advice issued by the government on 16 March 2020 in regard to Coronavirus (Covid-19), East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS) Ltd has made the decision to postpone all events, including direct training provided by ERVAS*, Youth Voice events, Volunteen activity, Youth Festivals and Networking events until further notice.  Please feel free to contact us for further information if you are not sure if this affects you.

ERVAS continues to operate and provide general advice, support and guidance to voluntary and community groups, volunteers and partner agencies, and people are advised to contact us via email, telephone and social media in the first instance. Our current plans are that the office will remain open.
