We support Buckinghamshire communities in three ways: by advising charities and not-for-profit groups on all aspects of running an organisation, by helping people find volunteering opportunities, and through our community services which focus on supporting those most in need – the elderly, vulnerable and socially isolated.
- We help charities and not-for-profit groups to get started, be effective and grow, by offering tailored support, guidance and training on a wide range of topics – from setting up correct governance and safeguarding policies, to securing funds and recruiting volunteers.
- We help Bucks residents find volunteer opportunities. Anyone who is 16 years or older and lives in the county can register with Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service to find a volunteer role which suit their interests, skills, and available time.
- We run a number of services which support Buckinghamshire’s communities directly. We help people to stay connected and live independently through our Pub Lunch Clubs, Gardening and Wellbeing Service, and Handy Helpers project, as well as help ensure people can access vital services through community transport schemes and our specialist service for village halls and community buildings. Since March 2022, we help coordinate the community response to support Ukrainians in the county.
If you would like to support Buckinghamshire communities – whether it is volunteering with a local charity, running a not-for-profit organisation or supporting one of our community services – please do get in touch: call 0330 236 9350 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
