Helping out with our projects

We always need people to help with all sorts of things, and you don’t necessarily need lots of experience or skills – the most important thing we’re looking for is people who want to make a difference and are willing to get stuck in.

Most of our projects simply wouldn’t be able to run without volunteers – so your help is vital!

At the moment, we’re looking for people to help with the following projects:

May Fayre (at St Mary's Church) 7 May 2018

Kingston Rec Celebration Event 24 June 2018

Your Partnership

The Partnership oversees Fratton Big Local, takes all the strategic decisions about what we do and decides how our Big Lottery funding is spent.

It’s made up of voting Partners, who are mainly local residents, and non-voting Partners, who are from local organisations that can help and advise us, such as Portsmouth City Council.

At the moment we’re not looking for new Partners, but if you’d be interested in becoming a Partner in the future do let us know.

Join our Volunteers Group

If you’re interested in getting involved regularly, you could come along to our Volunteers Group meetings. It’s a chance to find out what Fratton Big Local is planning & meet other volunteers.

The Group also helps assess any Community Grant applications that have been sent to Fratton Big Local, so you could take part in decisions on how our money is spent to help other local projects.

How you can get involved

Fratton Big Local is run by, and for, the people of Fratton – we depend completely on local residents getting involved in helping us.

So if you want to help us make Fratton a better place to live, work and play in – read on and find out what you can do.

If you’d like to find out more about how you can get involved with any of these, then just contact us.
