How we can help

Community Action: MK provides advice and support on setting up, managing and developing your charity, voluntary or community group in Milton Keynes. We can work with you on a 1:1 basis, or connect you with local training and events. We give advice on getting fit for funding, developing your group, forward planning and good governance.

The impact of Covid-19

We understand that many of our local VCSE groups in Milton Keynes are currently facing numerous challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. We have been awarded funding from MK Community Foundation to support groups during this difficult time. We would love to be able to help you and hour group with your queries (for example we can run a funding search for you or help you find volunteers to support your work), so please do explore our resources and/or contact us at the details below.

Collaborative Action Groups

As a response to the Covid-19 crisis, we have also been facilitating a network of Collaborative Action Groups (CAGs), a new approach to supporting the sector that we are currently testing. The network brings together a wide range of voluntary groups/charities, volunteers and community leaders to share learning and identify issues and gaps within our communities, and to make sure that those in most need receive the support they require. The CAGs meet online and share resources/training through an online platform. If you would like to join this collaborative network, please get in touch.

What other said about our work

It is very valuable having an organisation that has its ear to the ground, is up to speed with local developments and the needs of the community. Also, to have an organisation that can pull together resources, networking opportunities helps with not having to reinvent the wheel the whole time.
