We are a voluntary and community sector support organisation that develops, enables, promotes and supports local voluntary and community action (including volunteering) across Bedfordshire.

Community Action enables local communities to do more for themselves by creating, running and sustaining the social networks, activities and community groups needed to develop strong and vibrant communities.

We work with local residents on a variety of projects, including Timebanking, which enables anyone who would like to share or exchange their time and skills with others, and receive help in return, to do so through local Timebanks. Timebanking can be a great way to get involved in your community or to help others; helping to make happier, healthier communities.

We also work with residents to help them access local community groups and services, to connect with others, including their neighbours, and take an active part in community life.  Through this we also address loneliness and social isolation.
