Community Infrastructure Project

Who are we?

Seven Councils of Voluntary Services based in Hampshire, who, having been working closely together over many years; have come together in a formal partnership to enable collective bidding and commissioning of multi-partner work.

The seven partners in this venture are:

Action Hampshire > Gosport Voluntary Action > Rushmoor Voluntary Services > Unity > Basingstoke Voluntary Action > Hart Voluntary Action > One Community

What we do

We seek to enshrine the spirit of collaboration and common purpose amongst the Hampshire CVS partners. We will engage with a wide range of partners to:

  • Undertake joint contracts to meet commissioner and funder priorities.
  • Maintain excellent communication networks across the Hampshire districts that our partners represent to enhance joint commissioning and delivery.
  • Create, innovate and develop responses to improve lives and help communities thrive.
  • Monitor and evaluate services and provide valuable research for future service design.
  • To provide lasting legacy services.
  • To be identified as a model for high-quality service delivery across the sector.

We help Commissioners to:

1 – Work with a single contracted organisation to hold accountability for contract/ grant delivery that draws upon the huge breadth of individual partner diversity and local district knowledge to accelerate the successful delivery of services.

2 – Work with a consortium of professional and highly experienced Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise infrastructure bodies via one highly integrated, united and co-produced entity.

3 – Engage hundreds of community and social enterprise groups from across the county, via our collective membership of 2000+ local organisations between our district partners.
