We support all and any members of our local community, whether they need a little bit of extra help with shopping or collecting prescriptions, or if they are feeling lonely and disconnected, and many other things! We also arrange events, particularly our Christmas events where we seek to support the community in need and spread joy. We are Ferndown Community Support CIC, a not for profit organisation. We are a committed and dedicated team of volunteers who originally came together following the coronavirus crisis that sadly found its way to our shores. Our aims are many, and our mission is to keep all our residents as healthy, connected, safe and comforted as possible. Our volunteer numbers are many (but we always need more!); this is truly a community effort with everyone pulling together for each other. Please read on for information about our founding members and coordinators, and our progress so far.
Our directors and trustees:
Stuart has been with us from the start, a real whizz with databases and a dependable lifeline to us. Stuart has 2 beautiful rescue dalmations and enjoys cycling.
Tony is a bit of a local legend, always helping and supporting many causes and people. He is a trustee of The Fletcher Foundation, as well as a Dorset Chamber Mental Health First Aider. We are lucky to have him on our governance team. Will do anything for cake!
