About us

“Whether it’s a large charity, or a small lunch club, we help and inspire organisations and communities to be the best they can be”

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.

What’s a ‘not for profit’ organisation? We use this term to mean community groups, charities and social enterprises. Basically, any non-government organisation that is primarily motivated by a desire to ‘make life better’.

How can we help you? Take a look at our What do we do? webpage and see how we can help you. Alternatively, contact us for a chat by e-mail or phone on 01962 857350.

Our vision A world that is kind and fair, and where charity is no longer needed

Our purpose is to listen to, connect and equip people, so they flourish and make great things happen!

All of our work is driven by and underpinned by our values.


Until May 2014, we were known as Community Action Hampshire. This is still our legal name, but we have chosen to focus on the words ‘Action’ and ‘Hampshire’ because this sums up our ‘doing’ approach, the results that we want to see, and where we work.

We also support not for profit organisations in Portsmouth where we are known as Action Portsmouth.
