Volunteer Option report.
Business Innovation Project 4: “A report on Volunteering and Social Isolation” by: Chu, Francis, McNamee and St Clair (December 2018.)
This report was written as a result of One Community requesting research into reaching lonely and isolated people with a view to them accessing volunteering. Compiled in December 2018 this report includes practical recommendations for One Community going forwards, some of which are being implemented in the short or medium. Some to form longer term goals and which may depend on accessing further funding.

LGBQT Healthwatch research.
In the summer of 2018, One Community joined with Healthwatch to undertake some research. We did this research at Eastleigh PRIDE and we talked to a number of people and captured their responses on a questionnaire. The findings about the treatment of those who identify as LGBQT when accessing healthcare are demonstrated in this report.LGBQT healthwatch research
One Community Members Report 2017
One Community offers support and information to voluntary and community groups across the boroughs of Eastleigh and Fareham. Currently One Community has 186 full member organisations (see Appendix 1 for membership details), we have lost one member since the survey started on 21st June 2017. Fareham organisations can apply for associate membership.
This document reports on the work undertaken by one of our volunteers, Dave Bowring, as part of our continual update of our database of members and at the request of Eastleigh Borough Council about local community and voluntary sector organisations. Organisations change telephone contacts, expand or contract services, and our volunteer contacts all members at least once a year to check our details are up to date.
The aim was to understand how many beneficiaries our members are in contact with in their service, recognising it was not possible to establish if a beneficiary used more than one service.
