Make a Difference for Mayflower 400  

Make a Difference for Mayflower 400 is the Improving Lives Plymouth project contributing to Mayflower 400 and is aimed at businesses and individuals in Plymouth to prepare the city ready for Mayflower 2020. Visit our Make a Difference for Mayflower 400 page for more information


Community Champions   

Volunteer Connections is working in partnership with Devon and Cornwall Police to deliver Community Champions. This project will look to educate the public by providing information across local communities to improve general understanding on where to go to access support services for a variety of issues which should reduce the demand on our local police services.
