The Benefits

VCS’s and other not-for-profit groups based in Buckinghamshire who needed support to sustain and develop their organisation, and met the scheme’s Eligibility Criteria, could receive:

  • a free half-day’s support from Community Impact Bucks to help explore and confirm the organisation’s key areas of need; and
  • up to nine days of free specialist support to help address these needs, improve what they already do, or even to take a new direction.

A significant number of organisations benefited and were very positive about the experience, which the two comments below demonstrate.
