Positive Community Action CIC – Company number 13891571

Positive Community Action is an organisation that delivers radical, grass roots solutions to combat hunger, food waste, malnutrition, loneliness and cultural deprivation in Wiltshire, bridging the poverty and culture gaps by reaching out to isolated and marginalised rural communities.

We’ve been running since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic as PCCA and changed our name and status in May 2022 when we registered as a community interest company and became Positive Community Action CIC.

Donate to our cause

Support us!

We are a voluntary organisation that relies on the good will of our volunteers and your donations to operate. Everything we do we do for free and for the benefit of the community. Without your help, we simply wouldn’t be able to run the services we do. We need money to buy food and supplies, for running costs and overheads and for our bus.

If you are able, please donate using the following button or if you prefer you can request our bank details by emailing donations@ourpca.uk and put money straight into our account.

Your kindness goes a very long way and makes a huge difference in the lives of the people we support. Thank you for caring.
