Join in the conversation: our online discussion forum


At Action Hampshire, we want to help not-for-profit organisations to connect and share ideas with each other. To facilitate this, we have set up a Basecamp online community system.

Basecamp is a tool to discuss issues and ideas directly with colleagues in other voluntary sector organisations, share information and best practice. You can ask questions, respond to what other people have said, and post links to photos, useful documents etc. Sharing experience with others facing similar issues can benefit us all and help remind you that no matter the size of your organisation, you are not alone.

We have various network on Basecamp organised by area of interest, including:

  • CEOs
  • Trustees
  • Children & Young People’s organisations
  • Community Buildings
  • Health and Social Care
  • Social Enterprise

We’re happy to consider setting up further networks – just let us know what you’re interested in.

If you would like to join our Basecamp, contact us via email. See you at the Campfire!

Each network has the following functions:

This is the best place to hash things out quickly, think out loud, share news, and chat in real-time with CYP voluntary sector colleagues.

Message Boards
