About Us

What we do

Charities and volunteers play a vital role in improving the lives of thousands of people in Peterborough. Our expert support helps these incredible organisations run more effectively and make a bigger impact to local communities.

Our help across the sector is broad. From guiding groups and charities through the set-up processes for their new initiatives and offering a direct payments service, to standing up for the voluntary services sector and helping to make local lives better.

Our Aim

  • Provide specialist expertise, information, and support, develop the skills local people need to run successful organisations, and help groups find and make effective use of resources.
  • Spread good practice, prevent duplication of effort and support joint working.
  • Make sure policy makers understand the needs of local voluntary organisations and community groups and help public bodies engage effectively with local voluntary organisations and community groups.
  • Encourage more people to volunteer and get involved in voluntary and community action.
  • Provide direct services to meet identified needs where there is no appropriate local member organisation to do so.
