Community and volunteer groups

We're working hard to support communities as much as possible during the ongoing COVID-19 situation. New voluntary and community groups are being set-up throughout Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

How to volunteer

You'll be contacted within five working days.

Expert support for community groups

Local charity Community Action Network (CAN) is able to support current and new groups with expert advice:

Link up to help those in need

To help make sure your group is linking with those people who need help and support the most, please email communities@bcpcouncil.gov.uk so that we can help ensure your fellow residents, vulnerable neighbours and family have all the support they need. 

In your email please include the following information:

  • Your group name
  • Contact telephone number you would be happy for us to publicise
  • Email address you would be happy for us publicise
  • A brief description of the support your group can offer e.g. shopping, prescription pick up, information and advice, outreach to vulnerable/elderly
  • Specific locations across BCP where your group can support

Ask for volunteers to help local organisations, community groups or businesses

if you are a local organisation, community group or business that needs volunteer support. You'll contacted within the next five working days.
