How we’re run

Our commitment to quality

Community Action Network (CAN) is a charity that provides professional and practical support to organisations working within the voluntary and community sector in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, as we want to see these communities healthy, diverse, vibrant and flourishing.

Our mission is to empower the voluntary sector, enable volunteering and involve communities, and we believe that together, we CAN make a difference.

We provide professional expertise, practical services and a platform for promoting and sharing volunteering opportunities. We help groups set up, speak up on their behalf to ensure they have a say in the local community, support them to network, and give them the tools and knowledge they need to grow and thrive.

Any charity, voluntary group or community organisation working for the good of the local community can join us – and our members are the heart of everything we do.

Our co-produced Together we CAN 2020 – 2025  plan on a page details our strategy up to 2025.

Our values underpin all we do - they are: Collaborative – Compassionate – Inspirational – Integrity - Respect
