The National Council of Voluntary Organisations is an independent, non-profit, charitable organisation dedicated to the care, education and well-being of children and families in need of support in the Cayman Islands.
Since 1974, the organisation has helped local children, youth and families in need through the operation of various programmes, including The Jack and Jill Nursery and Early Learning Centre, for infants from 3 months to 2 years, Miss Nadine’s Pre-School and the Nadine Andreas Residential Foster Home, a “family type” home, which provides the essential ingredients to give children placed in care by Children & Family Services as normal a life as possible. The home currently cares for nine full time residents aged 6 –16 years.
Other programmes include the popular NCVO Bargain Shop, which stocks a wonderfully eclectic range of clothing, shoes, toys, furniture and other items donated by the public and resold for a bargain. Items are also donated to needy cases throughout the community. The John R. Gray Memorial Grant offers local students the opportunity to attend an overseas university or Cayman Islands college, and the Caring Cousins Welfare Scheme provides lunch and school supplies to students in need and small welfare grants to The Pines Retirement Home residents.
Embrace the spirit of the giving season and donate money at Camana Bay Christmas Give collection boxes located in participating Town Centre merchants. Donations will go towards NCVO recreational activities and rewards for children in need throughout the holidays and beyond.
