Community Links: The support of local authorities is vital to any community group. The club meets in premises provided by Fareham Borough Council. We rely heavily on both these and Gosport Borough Council to advertise our annual show.

The Fareham & District MRC is a partner in the One Compact for Hampshire, One Compact for Fareham Process. The Compact is a very important step forward in the relationship between the Statutory, Voluntary and Community sectors.

An important stopping place for any voluntary or community group should be its local Council for Voluntary Services. Here you will learn all the things that will make you eligible for grants as well as how to comply with all manner of legislation you had no idea actually applied to your group. The F&DMRC has become heavily reliant on Fareham Community Action for support in complying with all manner of legislative issues including Portable Appliance Testing for our portable electrical gear. To find out more what a Council for Voluntary Service does please follow their link above.
