Winslow Activity Club

Community Impact Bucks have supported Winslow Activity Club with a variety of help over the past few years and has become their ‘go-to’ source of help and advice.

Winslow Activity Club is a charity offering activities for adults with physical / learning disabilities and autism, including massage, music, art and sensory projects one morning a week, in a relaxed and caring environment.

They have taken advantage of the services provided by Community Impact Bucks on a variety of occasions over the past few years including training courses, advice surgeries and tailored support through New Futures Bucks.

This has resulted in them:

  • Finding a contact to provide them with a new website and Facebook profile free of charge
  • Successfully approaching FareShare to supply refreshments for their activity sessions
  • Developing a Trustee Handbook and relevant policies and procedures to ensure robust governance and make sure they are ready to recruit new trustees
  • Developing a volunteer strategy to recruit and retain more volunteers to help with activity sessions

Trustee Fran West explains how Community Impact Bucks have helped.

“They’re my first go-to when I have questions or queries as I can always find some help or be directed to someone who can provide me with the help I need. For a charity our size, the support we’ve had has been perfect and will help us develop.”
