|In this weeks newsletter, you will find useful links that have been collated and created by The Clare Foundation team.|
We are currently working with other charities, charity leaders, volunteer agencies and experts in their field, to ensure that you are as well informed as possible.
We have also been working closely with the Community Department at Buckinghamshire Council and respective bodies collating pertinent information and filtering what is out on the web – at the time of this newsletter we trust that it is all relevant and useful.
