New training for Bucks charities to help secure essential funding


Local charity Community Impact Bucks is running its first Fundraising Festival (4th-13th October 2022) to help charities and community groups in Buckinghamshire to secure essential funding as traditional sources of income are hit by increasing pressure on local government finances and household incomes.

The Festival series will cover four fundraising areas – In Memory and Legacy Fundraising, Trust and Foundation Fundraising, Corporate Fundraising, and Community and Event Fundraising– each of which offer huge amounts of opportunity but can be daunting especially for small charities.

The interactive training sessions are led by professionals who are experts in their chosen fundraising area, and are free for anyone (paid or unpaid) who raises money for a not-for-profit organisation in the county. For more information and to book, visit Virtual Fundraising Festival.

Cost of Living Support



Countries around the world are facing rising goods and energy prices, inflation and cost of living pressures after the pandemic and Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

We know people are worried so the government is offering help for households. See what cost of living support you could be eligible for.
