In a relatively isolated seaside town, Selsey Community Forum is a partnership of local voluntary organisations which, in cooperation with the statutory and commercial sectors, seeks to identify and meet local needs.
We also aim to guard the financial health of our local voluntary organisations by continually seeking
new sources of funding.
Over the past six years, while helping to develop the Selsey Community Plan, the forum has been involved
as a partner in starting and sustaining over one hundred new activities and organisations. Significant examples have been Manhood Internet Radio, a Flood Action Group, the Community Christmas Lunch, the Selsey Youth Network and Forget-Me-Not
(Selsey’s Dementia-Friendly Community Project).
In addition, we are proud to administer the awards process for the Ferry Farm Community Grant Fund.
Selsey Community Forum Trust is Registered Charity No 1146560.
It is currently managed by a board
of seven trustees, all of whom bring
wide experience to their roles.
We have received significant funding over the last six years and are most grateful to all our sponsors.
We have three part-time employees, working a total of around thirty hours each week. Other than that, our efforts are magnificantly supported by between 40 and 50 volunteers.
Membership of the forum is open to all charitable and voluntary organisations operating in Selsey. If
