Our purpose is to keep all you wonderful people doing what you do. Your work has never been more needed! Action Hampshire remains operational with staff working from home.

For almost 70 years, Action Hampshire has been supporting not-for-profit organisations to deliver great services to local people and communities; speak up for the changes they would like to see; and shape the future of where they live and work.Find out more
In 5 years we have mentored 101 local social entrepreneurs to develop and grow their business
This has created 200 jobs while tackling important issues in our community such as unemployment, education and health and wellbeing.
We’ve delivered nearly 500 homes in 49 villages through our affordable housing programme and partnership.
This has enabled local people to stay close to their social networks and buy homes in the communities that they know and love.
We host an online message board with over 70 representatives from community halls and centres.
This gives people the opportunity to connect with like-minded people and share great ideas about running a community space in the best way.

I have found Action Hampshire to be truly innovative and forward thinking in their approach to their work and their passion for the voluntary and community sector is easily measured through their work to help improve the lives of all sections of the community.Grant Cornwell, Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation
