Search Tips

Please follow the suggestions below, or alternatively call 0151 920 0726 and we will be happy to help you find what you are looking for.

Quick Search

Entering a keyword in the Quick Search box on the Home page will return all the services that contain that word in their Title or Description - results are returned in order of relevance therefore the services with most references to the keyword will be at the top of the list.

Entering more than one keyword will return all the services mentioning all or any of the keywords - again results are returned in order of relevance therefore those services matching all the keywords will be returned at the top of the list.

Adding a postcode will limit the results to those services that best match all the keywords - these results will be arranged in order of proximity to the postcode entered.

Advanced Search

Services have been assigned appropriate Service Categories, therefore you can search for services by category or theme using the dropdown box - selecting more than one service category will limit the results to only those services covering all selected themes.

Selecting an Area of Coverage will show only the services provided within the specified area - selecting more than one area will expand the results to include services provided in any/all of the specified areas.

Entering keyword/s or a postcode alongside specific Service Categories or Areas of Coverage will refine results further.

General Help

To browse click 'Search' and this will display the whole list of services that we currently have on record.

If you fail to find a relevant service try reducing the number of keywords / service categories or removing the postcode.

If you are still unsuccessful please advise us by calling 0151 920 0726, emailing VCFDirect@seftoncvs.org.uk or via the Contact Us form (under the Help menu) - we will be happy to support you further.
