Call for spon­sors to en­sure char­ity con­tin­ues to help Bucks fam­i­lies

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A BUCKS in­for­ma­tion and ad­vice ser­vice which re­ceives more than 15,000 enquiries a month is look­ing for spon­sors to help it con­tinue to pro­vide a high-qual­ity ser­vice for fam­i­lies across the county.

The Buck­ing­hamshire Fam­ily In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice, known as BFIS, is look­ing at cre­ative ways to gen­er­ate in­come for Bucks County Coun­cil, and one way of do­ing this is to of­fer spon­sor­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties to busi­nesses and other or­gan­i­sa­tions.

BFIS of­fers im­par­tial in­for­ma­tion, sup­port and ad­vice to the 68,568 fam­i­lies in Buck­ing­hamshire with chil­dren aged 0 to 19 years (or 25 with a dis­abil­ity) on sub­jects from child­care and ac­tiv­i­ties for young peo­ple to health and money.

The ser­vice is free and in­for­ma­tion is de­liv­ered by phone, so­cial me­dia, in per­son and via its web­site (www. b u c k s f a mil y i n f o. o r g ) which is a ‘one stop shop’ of in­for­ma­tion, ad­vice and lists hun­dreds of ac­tiv­i­ties and events.

The web­site is also host to the Buck­ing­hamshire Lo­cal Of­fer for chil­dren with spe­cial ed­u­ca­tional needs and dis­abil­i­ties.

The coun­cil’s cab­i­net mem­ber for ed­u­ca­tion and skills Zahir Mo­hammed said: “The pres­sure on ser­vices to meet the needs of Buck­ing­hamshire res­i­dents in­creases year on year and as a coun­cil we are be­ing called upon to de­liver more for less.

“The Fam­ily In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice of­fers an ex­tremely valu­able and high­qual­ity ser­vice to the 68,568 fam­i­lies in Buck­ing­hamshire, making a real dif­fer­ence to th­ese fam­i­lies.

“To con­tinue to of­fer such a great ser­vice, we are look­ing for spon­sor­ship from busi­nesses or or­gan­i­sa­tions.

“This is a really ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity for a busi­ness to sup­port a key lo­cal ser­vice, vi­tal to the fam­i­lies of Buck­ing­hamshire, and at the same time pro­vide an ef­fec­tive brand ex­po­sure across Buck­ing­hamshire.”

The site has 90,120 av­er­age monthly page views, 4,500 so­cial me­dia fol­low­ers and its fre­quent out­reach events reach an av­er­age of 4,800 peo­ple per year.
