Local Voluntary Sector Network

Are you part of a charity or community group in Buckinghamshire and would like to meet and work with other not-for-profit organisations in your area?

The Local Voluntary Sector Networks provide an informal space for Bucks-based charities, voluntary and community groups, and social enterprises to share ideas and resources, and collaborate on the local issues that matter most.

There are three Networks which cover different areas of the county and are based on the Buckinghamshire Council’s Community Board localities of North, South and Central. Each Network decides which local needs to focus on to bring about change in local communities.

Who should attend?

The Networks are for Bucks-based charities, voluntary/ community groups and social enterprises that are based in and/or provide a service in Buckinghamshire.

If you are not sure which locality your organisation’s base/ service provision comes under in Buckinghamshire, visit Buckinghamshire Council website where you can find details of the geographic areas covered by the Community Boards.
