Building a better Christchurch together
The Christchurch Community Partnership (CCP) is an established local independent charity which seeks to work with other voluntary and statutory organisations to both identify gaps in provision, and to deliver much needed services to the community.
Our projects all seek to address the significant issue of social isolation which impacts on residents across both the age and socio-economic spectrum and to improve the quality of life for all who live and work in Christchurch.
Happy Easter from Everyone at Christchurch Community Partnership.
The CCP offices will be closed from 12.00 pm on the 18th April and will open on Tuesday 23rd April at 9.00 am

CHRISTCHURCH SOUP EVENT
Souper time had by all!
The second Christchurch Soup was another resounding success – contributing £500 to Somerford ARC for its unique ADaPt Café for carers and sufferers of Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Parkinson’s disease, and £300 to the Soup Dragon nominated project Homestart. The Soup Dragon was a new addition this time which enabled a second project to also be awarded funding.
Local charities Christchurch Lions and Rotary Clubs, as well as Miller Bros Funeral Directors all contributed to make this possible, and CCP Chair, Rev Sandra Prudom, extended grateful thanks to them for their generous donations. Last year’s winner the Water Lily Project also reported on how they had used the funding to refurbish their community room so that they and other organisations were able to use it to run courses and activities for the community.
Almost 100 folk gathered at Mudeford Wood Community Centre and enjoyed delicious soup, live music from Swing Unlimited Community Band and were able to support the four projects, which also included A Little Group of Kindness and Brendon Care. The Volunteer of the Year award went to retired PC Brenda Traylen, for her incredibly popular annual Fish & Chip Supper for the elderly and housebound of Christchurch, with runner up Christchurch Angel Philippa Freed.
Organised by the Christchurch Community Partnership, the Soup events are excellent ways of raising the profile of smaller local groups needing funding for specific projects as well as volunteers to help them deliver their invaluable services to our community.
