Engage Befriending

News from Berkshire Community Foundation

Our new Impact Report celebrates the 173 grants awarded/projects funded during 2016/2017. We awarded over £979,000 to local causes, including 23 new groups.

This total exceeded our target and was the highest amount awarded in grants in any year of our history. Yet we remain determined to try to increase grant making because we know that the need in Berkshire is increasing, not diminishing.

Features in the 2016/2017 Impact Report include:

  • A Picture of need in Berkshire
  • 'A Life Less Lonely' 2015/2016 Campaign Update
  • How we make a difference in the community, with case studies from a number of groups including: Older People's Activities in Caversham (OPAC), Slough Furniture Project and Dingley's Promise.
  • Working in Partnership
  • Remembering John Nike OBE, DL
