Buckinghamshire Council works hard at the heart of the community to deliver essential services seven days a week, all year round. They provide services to every community in Buckinghamshire from over 500 locations.
New Futures Buckinghamshire provided expert one-to-one support to voluntary and community sector organisations in Buckinghamshire, completely free of charge!
Designed to support the development needs and long-term sustainability of Buckinghamshire’s Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS), New Futures was commissioned and funded by Buckinghamshire Council.
VCS’s and other not-for-profit groups based in Buckinghamshire who needed support to sustain and develop their organisation, and met the scheme’s Eligibility Criteria, could receive:
- a free half-day’s support from Community Impact Bucks to help explore and confirm the organisation’s key areas of need; and
- up to nine days of free specialist support to help address these needs, improve what they already do, or even to take a new direction.
A significant number of organisations benefited and were very positive about the experience, which the two comments below demonstrate.
