We regularly publish updates from our members in our Hart Matters newsletter and promote their work through our quarterly Voluntary Sector Forum.
We run the Hart Volunteer Centre, which matches local residents looking to volunteer with hundreds of volunteering opportunities provided by voluntary and community groups in Hart and the surrounding area.
Working in collaboration with Rushmoor and Basingstoke Volunteer Centres, we also manage Volunteer North Hampshire with hundreds of local volunteering opportunities available at any one time.
Hart Voluntary Action is funded by Hampshire County Council and Hart District Council to provide this support as a Council for Voluntary Services.
