Enriching the lives of people who live in our community

Burns in the Community is our way of enriching the lives of people who live in our community.

The project provides support for individuals who have the potential to become socially excluded. We work with local community groups and a whole host of social organisations.

Using our minibus, driven by our small but amazing team of volunteer drivers, we collect individuals and take them to activities such as dementia groups, coffee mornings, singing sessions and lunch clubs.

Our fantastic new Headquarters at Canolfan John Burns Centre

Our fantastic new headquarters set in 20 acres of land has been designed specifically to give us the space to develop and expand our charitable objectives, thereby maximising our work within communities
We will continue to deliver and work with partner organisations to bring services into the community such as parent and baby groups, socialisation groups for the elderly and prevention sessions run by the emergency services. We will continue to use our facilities to host groups from other organisations such as monthly sessions for children with visual impairment.
All these services will now be delivered at Canolfan John Burns Centre along a number of other exciting projects which will benefit the community.

A small charity with big aspirations

We are a small charity with big aspirations, that is committed to making a difference to the lives of people.

We are extremely grateful to Burns Pet Nutrition for the financial support that we receive but we are always fundraising so that we can reach a bit further. From charity fruit and vegetable sales at Parc Y Bocs Farm Shop, selling the produce grown by the groups the foundation works with to seasonal events such as the fabulous May and Christmas Fairs.

It is hoped that our new headquarters will be instrumental in helping the charity become more sustainable by utilising some of its space for commercial purposes thus generating revenue for the charity.

The John Burns Foundation is a registered Charity, monies raised or contributed are used solely for maintaining and developing our charitable works.
