Part of the role of the CVSW will be to further develop similar relationships, forming new links with other groups in our local community through local networking. The CVSW will be able to draw on the strengths of the existing Café Oasis team, enabling them to work together developing this new role, which is also to assist in attracting new volunteers; while developing the necessary pastoral and developmental support for existing volunteers.
