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 seeking new sources of funding.
Over the past ten years, the forum has been involved with partners in starting and sustaining over one hundred new activities and organisations.
As well as a presence on social media, we publish various newsletters
which, together with other items of current interest, you can find here.
The Selsey Community Forum Trust is Registered Charity No 1156460 and is managed by board of trustees.
We have received significant funding over the last seven years and are most grateful to all our sponsors.
We have eleven part- time employees and are magnificantly supported by around 170 active volunteers.
Membership of the forum is open to all charitable and voluntary
organisations operating in Selsey. If your organisation is not currently represented, you are most welcome to join us at our regular meetings.
Our current community groups mainly involve social support to the local community which is provided through the Selsey Care Shop.
We are also involved in providing a safe cycle route from Selsey
to Chichester. In addition, we are proud to administer the awards
process for the Ferry Farm Community Grant Fund.
We are immensely proud that
Selsey Community Forum
has received the King's Award for Voluntary Service. The award is the highest honour a volunteer service can be given and is a well-deserved tribute to the dedication of our Trustees, Staff and wonderful Volunteers. Find out more here.
Our policies are important to us;
