Those who are particularly vulnerable to isolation are already coping with tough situations like young carers, the homeless, families with sick children and elderly people living alone. Our new campaign 'A Life Less Lonely' hopes to raise £75,000 so that crucial services and support is more readily available across the county. Berkshire Community Foundation has been at the forefront of local charitable giving for the last 30 years. We raise funds for, and make grants to, local charities and community groups addressing identified needs across Berkshire. We strengthen communities, tackle disadvantage and transform lives by addressing local problems, using local funds and local expertise.Last year we gave over £900,000 to a wide range of local projects, addressing issues such as child poverty and homelessness.
