Supporting community organisations, charities and social enterprises to be resilient, well-resourced and impactful.

Start-Up Support

Starting a new community group can seem complicated – but don’t be put off. Our COGS (Community Organisations Getting Started) guide and support service is here to help.

Support Surgeries

Together with our telephone helpline, surgery services, delivered in-person or virtually, provide free comprehensive funding and development support for local community and third sector organisations.


ASPIRE is a free health-check available to local third sector organisations. No pass or fail, just an honest assessment of where you are and what you could do to build better.

Volunteer Experience

Volunteering brings benefits for the volunteer and the organisation they support. A good volunteering experience is crucial. We have a range of tools to help you.

Learning and Skills

We offer a programme of free and low-cost training courses and workshops for voluntary organisations and charities. We can also tailor training to your individual needs.

Community Assets

Developing a strong asset base can help make your organisation more sustainable. Acquiring and managing assets needs careful planning and we are here to help.
