Meet the Team

Meet the Mansfield CVS team! We're a dedicated, experienced, friendly bunch of folk, most of whom have been based at CVS for longer than they may care to admit...

Between us we have experience and knowledge in all areas of group support, community engagement, service delivery training, building management, marketing, social media amongst other things! We liaise with Mansfield District Council and Nottinghamshire County Council, and have strong working links with the NHS and the CCGs. 

Importantly, we also have staff who have fantastic working relationships with community workers on all levels in Mansfield and district, as well as residents and neighbourhood groups teams. We know our area and are committed to making the communities of Mansfield safe, strong and successful.

My name is Deanna (it’s not always been but, explanations later) and I’ve been volunteering at Mansfield CVS roughly six and a half years now.  During that time I have worked with almost every creed and colour, the disabled; the gay and the transgendered; the last two of which count me among their company, told you I wasn’t always Deanna.
