Gender and Community Sector

The Council of Voluntary Social Services works with non-profit agencies all across Jamaica. Sector meetings, special events, agency capacity building, advocacy work and promotion of volunteerism are just some of the ways we work with member agencies to build a strong future for Jamaica.

Members of the Gender and Community Sector are building strong, safe, inclusive communities across Jamaica. Their services include

  1. Services to people with disabilities
  2. Home-based intervention
  3. Inter-agency collaboration
  4. Environmental education
  5. Screening & assessment of children with disabilities – medical, physical & educational assessment
  6. Parent support & advocacy
  7. Training in child-rearing skills
  8. Parent counselling
  9. Environmental education
  10. Employment & entrepreneurial skills training

Advocacy and support for all Jamaicans at every level of society is an essential undertaking of the Gender and Community Sector. Collaborations have led to presentations to Parliament on the topic of Domestic Violence, inner-city entrepreneurship fairs, and public policy development.
