Support Cambridgeshire is a three-year project, funded by Cambridgeshire County Council bringing together three partner organisations who will work together to support community groups and organisations across Cambridgeshire.

Hunts Forum of Voluntary Organisations will lead the partnership, supported by Cambridge Council for Voluntary Services and Cambridgeshire ACRE. Each of the partner organisations will serve as expert sources of advice and guidance. Support Cambridgeshire will deliver better outcomes for local organisations across the county, with the expectation of a stronger and more vibrant voluntary and community sector.

Support Cambridgeshire will harness the skills and expertise contained within the partnership, but will also use other Development partners as and when required.

What we do

Voice and representation

We help community groups and statutory organisations with the challenges they face by championing their work and helping them to share expertise and skills.

Local town and parish councils

We help citizens and communities take charge of their local services by exploring partnerships with town and parish councils.

Information and advice

Getting the right information, advice and guidance is essential for your organisation, whether it’s face-to-face support, training or attending networking events.

Community facilities

Are you running a community building or looking to acquire a new one. We offer advice to organisations struggling with the complexities of governance, legislation and funding.

Volunteering and social action

Social action is about people and communities coming together to solve problems which affect them by volunteering and taking action.
