Community Connection

Community Connection is our Volunteer Network magazine full of local news, events, volunteering opportunities, training and puzzles. It began as an activity booklet for members of the community isolating due to the coronavirus, but is now so much more.

Community Connection is released four times a year, in spring, summer, autumn, and winter. You can read it online here, or in community hubs such as food banks and libraries across the borough. We also have copies at the Happy Hub in Basildon Eastgate.

Below you can find Community Connection Digital, which is best read on a desktop computer, laptop or tablet.

If you would like us to include something in a future issue please get in touch. It could be a feature on your organisation, a volunteer opportunity or job, or perhaps an upcoming event, for example.
