Community Action Fareham
Community Action Fareham works with community groups and charities in the Fareham borough, growing community spirit so that people feel included, and are active, healthier and happier. Importantly, we work with our local councils who provide funding for us to support this community activity. Our activities include:
Support for Groups
We support groups and help groups to help each other. Community groups are invited to become Members of Community Action Fareham. Support for groups ranges from helping a new group get started to interpreting the requirements of the Charity Commission and much more in between. We help groups to operate safely and achieve their purpose without getting bogged down in the process or red-tape.
Support for People in our Communities
We operate a range of community services on a not-for-profit basis, with the support of fully-trained staff and volunteers. Charges, fees or donations will apply, but are set at affordable rates.
Promoting and Organising Volunteering
Our Volunteer Centre knows where volunteers are needed in our local community and advertises volunteering vacancies. We help people who are looking for a volunteering placement that matches their interests and skills. We support voluntary groups wanting to recruit volunteers.
Men's Shed in Fareham
Men's Sheds provide a place where people, especially men, can share time, ideas and activities.
