Renfrewshire Council for Voluntary Services – RCVS


Renfrewshire Council for Voluntary Services (RCVS) is a not-for-profit organisation that exists to help community and voluntary groups in any way we can for the greater good of Renfrewshire’s citizens. From securing funding, training staff and running events to handling payrolls, printing and the creation of promotional films, we aim to help local groups no matter what their needs are. We have a new website with the services we can offer and the ways we can work together for the better of all. It can be found at:

The Paisley Daily Express


Great news we are in the local newspaper the Paisley Daily Express. Welcome to all the Paisley Daily Express readers and thanks to the express for their great article.

I am pictured with Mhairi and Michael who are both volunteers for the website, some of our volunteers including Victor, Margaret, Jeanette as well as others couldn’t make the photo opportunity unfortunately, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers for all their hard work and dedication to the website.

Also if you feel you would like to help with the website in any capacity be it gathering information or even nominating someone for the notable person or famous person section then please use the contact button on the main website to get in touch.

Once again thanks to all our visitors to the website and especially to everyone who regularly uses the message board “you know who you are”…

Request for more volunteers


We now have a great bunch of volunteers who help with the Paisley website. All our volunteers have Paisley at heart and are always telling people all about how good Paisley is and that they should visit I would like to thank all our volunteers who work tiresely for the website and dont get enough thanks.

I am still looking for volunteers to help out with this website and it does not matter if you dont know much about computers “or even own a computer” it doesnt matter if your physically able or not either, I just need people who are passionate about Paisley and would like to try to raise the profile of the town.

It could be in many forms i.e pictures, history, stories, local information etc

I especially need someone who is great in these areas of expertise.

  • History of Paisley
  • Funding “or form filling”
  • Old pictures
  • Genealogy expertise
  • Promotion and/or leaflet delivery
  • Sales “advertising”

The funding one is critical for the future development of the website and I would be grateful to anyone who has good knowledge of this area and also if anyone could do a few telephone sales and if they are good they could be paid on a commission basis.

Once again thanks to all our existing volunteers you know who you are..
