We aim to create, support and develop a sustainable and vibrant third sector.  Our work involves both direct support and communicating and facilitating strong and effective community voices which will have an influence locally, regionally and nationally.  We run well attended networking events in addition to offering room hire for groups and individuals.

Our volunteering team are able to support hundreds of volunteer opportunities across Bassetlaw and Bolsover each year. 

We work to support those wishing to become volunteers, as well as organisations that have opportunities to promote their roles.

We also offer support for both new and existing community groups including funding support, governance, training, finance and administration services.
