Community Action Network provides 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.

As an organisation we really want to improve our support and networking opportunities for community centres, buildings and spaces in the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area.

We want to set up a regular networking and training webinars to enable groups to knowledge share, collaborate and support each other.

We will be introducing you to CAN and our team sharing information about our:

• volunteer hub

• professional and expert advice – including policies and procedures, governance and funding

• training and networking opportunities

At the session we will also be giving a quick update around reopening after covid.

CAN recognises that you’re all passionate about helping people, but the work can be daunting. That's why we offer free membership to any charity, community group or voluntary organisation working in Bournemouth, Christchurch or Poole. Our members are at the heart of everything we do and we are keen to ensure we are representative of as many VCS organisations as possible and would love for you to join us.

More information about the membership and how to join can be found on our website.
