Community organisations

Caroline believes that voluntary organisations are the backbone of the Gosport Constituency’s community. She has visited various local and national charities, community groups & organisations including the Age UK, the homelessness charity Alabare and the Sea Cadets.

She has been interviewed for the Stubbington Talking Newspaper, worked a shift at the Barnardo's charity shop in Lee-on-the-Solent and helped launch both the Gosport's Older Persons Forum and the Gosport Men's Shed. She took part in the launch of the Gosport Dying Matters Project and has regular updates with Citizens Advice Gosport.

In July 2012, Caroline took part in a charity skydive and in May 2014 she abseiled down the Spinnaker Tower, both to raise funds for the Gosport & Fareham branch of the MS Society.

Caroline has hosted receptions in Westminster to thank local volunteers and charity workers for their hard work.

Caroline is also a keen supporter of Gosport Youth Council, who she has invited to the House of Commons. She regularly meets with a representative from GYC to keep in touch with her younger constituent's views. She also strongly supports Loud and Proud which is a voluntary group for young people who help others within the constituency with a variety of activities and Motiv8 who work to improve the life chances of young people and families.

Caroline joined the campaign to save the Iona Club in Bridgemary, supporting the dialogue between the club's committee and the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth, who owns the building, and was delighted the two parties went on to reach a mutual agreement. Since late 2015 Iona Family Club has once again been a fully functioning community hub.

In June 2018, Caroline helped launch the Gosport Community Lottery which supports local good causes. To buy your ticket with a 1 in 50 chance of winning click here .
