Next Generation is a forward looking, modern and progressive charity tackling the immediate and current issues affecting people within the Borough of Hinckley and Bosworth.
Along with our own services Next Generation (NG) is commissioned by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council to act as the lead Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) Organisation for the HBBC/VCS Partnership, overseeing and coordinating provision and support available to the local VCS community across the Borough.
Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
The Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council recognises the valuable contribution of the VCS, therefore commits to investing annually to ensure the ongoing offer of support and provision to the VCS via the Partnership. This includes supporting direct delivery of local projects. These funds are allocated to small and large organisations/community groups via the VCS Commissioning Board.
Volunteers' Week 1st -7th June 2020
Volunteers’ Week takes place from 1st-7th June 2020 and is an annual celebration of the contribution that millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.
This week we focus on the wonderful volunteers in our Borough who have pulled out all the stops during the coronavirus pandemic. We are extremely thankful to each and every individual who has offered their time and commitment during these challenging months.
Many vulnerable people who have been isolating during the pandemic have greatly relied on the support of volunteers. From food provision, prescriptions collections, dog walking, telephone befriending and transport and more, it has been a tremendous collective effort to provide these services right across our locality.
Over the week we will be sharing case studies of the groups and organisations who have helped those affected by the coronavirus within our Borough.
All of these volunteers have made such an impact to help improve people's lives and this will never be forgotten to those whose lives they have touched.
Thank you to all!
