We support community and voluntary groups in Rushcliffe, from advice centres and lunch clubs to wildlife trusts and scout groups. We're here to help and inspire groups and organisations to get started and run professionally. We offer expert advice and assistance with training, fundraising and volunteering, as well as giving encouragement and moral support.
And because we believe in what these groups stand for, we endeavour to represent their views to those who make decisions affecting their work. To get a fuller picture, click on the Services, Projects and Volunteers tabs.
