Are you looking for:
- Funding for your group?
- Or thinking of starting a new organisation?
- Or need some help with governance of your organisation?
At our one-to-one Advice appointments, at a time and date to suit you, we can give you advice on a wide range of funding and governance issues, tailoring all information to your charity or community group. Here are some examples of areas discussed during previous advice sessions:
- How to start up a charity, community group or social enterprise
- Where to get funding
- Changing your constitution or updating areas of governance
- Ensuring your organisation is compliant with legal and regulatory requirements
*Please note that although we offer generalist advise, we are unable to assist with high level or complex queries. We will however offer signposting in these situations.
We will also signpost you to other resources and organisations which could help and, if appropriate, introduce you to other local charities.
Following the 1 hour session, you will receive a list of the resources discussed in the session to help you move forward. We will also agree a date to follow up with you to review progress and give further support if needed.
Who should attend?
These sessions are for charities, social enterprises and other voluntary and community groups already delivering services in Buckinghamshire, as well as for people looking to set up new organisations delivering services in Buckinghamshire.
Your advisor will be Frankie, VCSE and Community Development Officer at Community Impact Bucks. Frankie has over 10 years’ experience in the charity sector – having set up her own charity as well as working for both small local and larger national charities in senior fundraising roles

- “Community Impact Bucks is a really useful one-stop-shop for all our fundraising and training needs. It is so useful having this help under one roof rather than having to follow up with numerous other people and organisations.”
- “A very useful ‘sanity check!’”
- “… just wanted to say a big thank you for pointing me in the direction of Heart of Bucks as I was fortunate with my bid for funding – that was down to you providing me with this information and as Coordinator of the support group I would like to thank you.”
