Hunts Forum of Voluntary Organisations is an independent, non-profit making registered charity based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
The charity was established in 1994 and incorporated as a charitable company in 2006. We are governed by an unpaid board of charity trustees, who are also company directors. They are drawn from our membership or co-opted for their skills or expertise.
We are based at The Maple Centre on the Oxmoor Estate. We manage the centre for us and six other frontline organisations, who are also our members, and we provide meeting rooms and a training suite on a not-for-profit basis.
We strengthen and champion social action across Cambridgeshire through an effective, sustainable local voluntary and community sector, helping them to make the biggest difference they can.
We encourage, support and develop voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations and individuals to have a real influence over the places and communities in which they live.
We facilitate positive change in society by working together.
We explore new ideas and approaches, looking for what will add real value.
We value diversity and provide mutual support and encourage one another.
We harness people’s skills and build their confidence to shape and inform policy and practice
We are open and honest and do what we believe is best for our members, volunteers and the voluntary sector
We believe individuals and communities all have unique skills, talents, knowledge and insights that are important. We believe we can do great work by using our unique collective skills, knowledge and lived experience.
