Heart of Bucks is the community foundation for Buckinghamshire; a funding organisation awarding grants and loans to local charities and community groups. Community foundations are dedicated to improving the lives of people in a defined local geographical area. We bring together the financial resources of individuals, families, and businesses to support effective non-profits in their communities.

In Kind Direct

In Kind Direct is a charity connecting businesses and manufacturers with new products to donate, to charitable organisations that need them. These are goods that would otherwise end up in landfill. They have worked with 9,600 charitable organisations since being founded in 1997. Registration is free and charity members could each save thousands of pounds every year. Their online catalogue is regularly updated with products from toiletries and cleaning products to bedding, toys, mother and baby goods, craft supplies and much more. In Kind Direct also works with trusted partners like Directory of Social Change (DSC), Office Depot, Ryman and Ricoh to get extra discounts on other essentials and training. They help charitable organisations spend more on support, not supplies.

Investors in the Community

INVESTORS IN COMMUNITY - Ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Investors In Community began when they identified that the third sector relationships with business were largely disorganised with nothing to drive the social contributions between the three pillars of giving – companies, individuals and good causes. At Investors in Community they aim to bring everyone together, offering charities and community groups the ability to manage the giving into their organisation, whilst promoting their projects to businesses and individuals who wish to donate funds, items and volunteer. Business Members: They have developed a business management tool with a key focus to ensure that companies are able to stay in control of their giving with our unique, easy to use dashboard. Companies can manage staff volunteering their time during work hours and the donations by the business – all of which can be filtered into reports that suit you. Free to Use for all Charities, Good Causes & Individuals: By providing a tool that gives businesses that cutting edge in managing their Social Responsibility, it has allowed us to create a platform free to use by all individuals and good causes. Community Credits: Every individual and business will earn ‘Community Credits’ for all forms of giving, which will drive activity as they compete against friends and neighbours to invest the most in their community.

Lindengate

Lindengate is a mental health charity that offers specialised gardening activities to help those with mental health needs in their continuing recovery. Our services, known as Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH), use the healing power of nature and the outdoors to improve mental wellbeing, boost self-esteem, promote social inclusion and encourage long-term recovery. Getting people out of their homes and mixing with others outdoors is a catalyst to break down their social isolation and encourage recovery. STH is recognised to be beneficial for a wide range of mental health needs including anxiety, depression, loneliness as well as for people with autism, dementia and head injury.

For organisations through our sister organisation, Gerutha, we encourage charities and social enterprises to work together to create programmes and access funding, as well as providing support that enables organisations to access the best people and the best systems to achieve their visions.

Time To Change Bucks

Mental ill-health is the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK, costing an average of £1,035 per employee per year. Looking after the mental health of your employees makes business sense: tackling stigma can make a real difference to sickness absence rates, presenteeism levels, staff wellbeing and productivity, and retention. Since signing the Employer Pledge, 95% of employers said it had a positive impact on their organisation. Taking the employers pledge is free of charge and we make many free resources available on how to manage Mental Health and stigma in the workplace. To contact the local Buckinghamshire Hub team and have an informal chat on how we can help email us at timetochange@buckscc.gov.uk

ToolShed
