Community Matters

Given the difficult climate the sector is experiencing, both Community Matters and Charity Backroom believe partnerships essential to offering community groups and charities across the country the services they require at prices they can afford to ensure sustainability.

Community Matters is the National Federation for Community Organisations.

They champion voluntary and community action at neighbourhood level, as a means of local people taking control of issues in their area and fostering community spirit.

They are working to create a national network of community organisations and activists who share their vision and support their aims, by developing and delivering low-cost, targeted and practical support, and by building a comprehensive programme of external work covering policy, parliamentary affairs, communications and research.

Community Matters are leading national specialists in Community Asset Transfer, the management of community facilities, and charity law and governance.  Their VISIBLE Quality Standards are nationally accredited and endorsed by the Charity Commission, designed specifically for community groups. They have also recently launched Your Value! - an online social value tool to help community groups demonstrate their impact.

Community Matters offers free membership to any community group with an annual turnover of less than £15,000.
