Safeguarding heritage, environment, community and future development


home --> civic Voice


The Bracknell Forest Society is a member of Civic Voice the national charity for the civic movement in England. This provides a source of information relevant to Civic Societies and campaigns at a national level. Civic societies provide a focus for voluntary and community action to improve the places where people live, work and relax. They champion the importance of these places to decision makers and opinion formers in business, politics, government, the media, the voluntary sector and elsewhere. They play an essential and voluntary role in helping individuals and communities to understand and take action to improve the quality of their life through the place where they live. Civic societies promote and celebrate the best of what is inherited from the past and what is developed for the future. They are a fundamental source of civic pride. This work brings benefits to the whole community and not just to those who are members of civic societies.
