MVCAP is a charity working to take community aspirations and turn them into reality.


MVCAP was founded in 2004 as Malmesbury and the Villages Community Area Partnership to engage with local people and find out what they wanted to see change, happen, or stay the same in their community over the next 15 years. In May 2005 MVCAP published the first Community Plan which was distributed throughout the area. The most recent update was released in 2015. This process has now been replaced by Wiltshire Council's JSA process to which we contribute.

With the move away from relying upon support from Wiltshire Council, MVCAP now concentrates primarily on community projects and supporting local charities and community groups. We provide practical support including giving advice and seed funding for new initiatives.

We are fortunate to have the services of Mark Allen, who is a professional web developer and copywriter. He can help your small charity or community group set up a website for little or no cost.

Aside from supporting other charities and community groups, we also run a number of projects ourselves including a walking group that develops and promotes walking trails and works to increase the accessibility of the countryside for people with restricted mobility.

Our work is mostly in the Malmesbury Community Area. This covers the parishes of Ashton Keynes, Brinkworth, Brokenborough, Charlton, Crudwell, Dauntsey, Easton Grey, Great Somerford, Hankerton, Lea & Cleverton, Leigh, Little Somerford, Luckington & Alderton, Malmesbury, Minety, Norton & Foxley, Oaksey, Sherston, Sopworth and Malmesbury St Paul Without. All these parishes are in the north-west of Wiltshire, UK.
