Local infrastructure organisations provide valuable support to their communities every day. But during the COVID-19 pandemic their support has been vital. The #HeartOfOurCommunity campaign is a celebration and a thank you to all our members for their dedication, hard work and sacrifice during these difficult times.
(Thank you to everyone who contributed)
Our members support over 160,000 local charities and voluntary groups across the country, helping them to thrive and deliver essential services within their communities. The support they provide can generally be split into five key areas:
Working with the local community to create and develop ways to meet the needs and aspirations of people in their area.
Bringing people together from all kinds of voluntary and community groups, to make connections, share what they do and support each other.
Encouraging local voluntary organisations and community groups with tools, information, and practical expertise, so they can be the best they can be.
Making the case for, and speaking as the trusted voice of, the local voluntary community with local councils, NHS, government and others.
Connecting with local initiatives and partners, and working together on local projects, to share knowledge and resources or the benefit of the local community, voluntary organisations and community groups.
