About Us:

At Community Impact Bucks our vision is ‘A better life

Community Impact Bucks is the First Stop for charity and community group support! We exist to enable charities and not for profit groups to exceed their expectations and to make volunteering in Bucks easy. We are an independent charity that gives support, advice and training to not for profit organisations and community groups. Through our expertise, knowledge and grass roots engagement we enable the voluntary and community sector to reach its full potential.

We offer a range of services in the community, one of which is our Gardening and Befriending Project, which provides a much needed and valued service to vulnerable people living in the Aylesbury Vale.

Our clients include older people, young carers and people living with disabilities. Many live in deprived areas and are often socially isolated and living alone in the community.

A garden can be a haven from the hustle of everyday life, an uplifting place to sit and connect with nature or perhaps somewhere to enjoy physical activity. If however you are elderly and infirm, living with a disability or a carer for a family member with a long-term illness; having a garden can be a real problem. What was formerly a pleasure can become a source of anxiety, particularly when it has become overgrown and out of control.

We match our clients with a 1-2-1 gardening volunteer who will provide a gardening service consisting of: grass cutting, weeding, light digging, pruning shrubs, watering plants and bagging up gardening waste.

Our group gardening team are on hand for the bigger jobs e.g. garden clearances, path/patio cleaning and maintaining large gardens.

Our volunteers enjoy both gardening and the social contact so having a cup of tea and a chat is much appreciated. Over time our volunteers form friendships with their clients and they both look forward to the regular visits. For some this offers a rare opportunity for companionship and a link to the outside world.

With your help we can continue to provide our Gardening and Befriending services to vulnerable people in our community who do not have the means to be able to access these services elsewhere.

Please sign-up today and make a huge difference to the lives of disadvantaged people living in the Aylesbury Vale.  

We appreciate your support, however large or small - every penny counts.

Thank you and good luck!

Samantha Hardy, Gardening Services Manager
