One Community was first awarded the Council contract in 2015. The contract was awarded again this year after the service was put out to tender. Organisations submitted proposals which were assessed on best quality of service, best value for money and the proposed service being offered.
Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Sue Bell, said: “One Community have offered an excellent service and have made a difference to so many community organisations that operate for the benefit of people living in the Fareham Borough.
“We are delighted that One Community is going to continue to offer this fantastic service. There is so much evidence that people benefit from opportunities provided by volunteering and engagement with community groups, so it is of paramount importance to offer well-supported, effective community and voluntary activities.”
