One Community

In 2015, Fareham Borough Council began working with the charity 'One Community' to support our community groups and many volunteers with advice on governance, funding links, volunteer One Community logoplacement, volunteer support and training. We encourage all community groups and volunteers that could benefit from support in these areas to make contact with One Community, who will be very pleased to help.

Regardless of age, race, background or experience everyone can help someone and we can all make a difference.  Every person who has been supported by a volunteer, served by a volunteer, comforted or directed by a volunteer has had their lives touched for the better.  Most volunteers will tell you they get back what they give in equal measures: satisfaction and a sense of wellbeing.

Find out more information and opportunities available to you by looking at their latest publication, Volunteering Matters Fareham PDF (1 MB), which is a monthly newsletter featuring voluntary and community sector updates, information, and news about funding, training and events.

In 2018, One Community received the highest accolade for voluntary groups in the UK, The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.

Later in the year Fareham Borough Council presented the Fareham Citizen of Honour Special Group Achievement Award to One Community.
