We support community and voluntary groups in Rushcliffe, from advice centres and lunch clubs to wildlife trusts and scout groups. We're here to help and inspire groups and organisations to get started and run professionally. We offer expert advice and assistance with training, fundraising and volunteering, as well as giving encouragement and moral support.
And because we believe in what these groups stand for, we endeavour to represent their views to those who make decisions affecting their work. To get a fuller picture, click on the Services, Projects and Volunteers tabs.
Please vote for us.
We are always looking for ways to expand our service. We have applied for funding from the Galaxy hot chocolate fund to help us recruit and train more volunteers and market our service more widely. We need your votes please so we can get this funding. Thanks in anticipation.
