• Fair Share Funding

    The national Fair Share programme is coming to an end in March, including our area of benefit in West Howe.

    This 10 year funding stream has supported a number of projects in the area including:

    The DOVE project at the North Bournemouth Children’s Centre

    Listening Ear counselling for young people

    3 years of Domestic Violence outreach support through BCHA

    The first West Howe Music Festival

    Young Citizens project – 3 years youth worker support and a fishing project

    The Edward May Court Social Group

    Fernheath Play Association

    Fernheath Community Sports Association netball group

    IT workshops through Age Concern (now Age UK Bournemouth)

    A Safety Awareness Day at Butcher’s Coppice

    Community gardening, Boredom Busters and work on the community cafe through West Howe Investing in People

    The Butterfly Foundation arts support for survivors of domestic abuse

    Vita Nova

    Dance Bytes sessions at the Henry Brown Youth Centre

    and Martha, the neighbourhood worker!

    If you or anyone you work with have benefitted from the Fair Share-funded elements of these projects and would like to tell the story of your experiences – whether that’s a 30 seconds “Yippee” or a more detailed story - I’m putting together some material for publicity and would love to hear from you please.

    If you’d like to tell your story directly on the Community Foundation Network website it’s here: and the blog(which you an contribute to) is here:

    Or pop into the inspiring change shop or give martha call (01202) 579036) to tell your story!
