About the fund

The Voluntary Fund is an independent charitable trust that has been set up to give the local community the opportunity to donate to local organisations who make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people in the borough.

The Council is unable to provide all the support needed due to huge reductions in our own funding. The services funded by these charitable donations will be in addition to those already funded by us.

Find out about amounts raised in previous years.

Beneficiary charities

Every year the trustees select a vulnerable group who have a need for community funding to provide help and support.

They then invite expressions of interest from voluntary and community organisations to be the chosen beneficiaries. The expressions of interest are reviewed by trustees and the beneficiary charities are selected.

2024/25 charities

The charities for 2024/25 are Dose of Nature, Skylarks and the Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation. Find out more about the 2024/25 beneficiary charities.


Anyone in the borough will be able to donate, but we will be writing directly to those residents who live in the highest valued properties (Bands G and H).

You can donate any amount and every donation will make a difference. You can either make a one-off gift or set up a direct debit so you can donate on a regular basis.
