Key Funders & Partners

Home/Key Funders & Partners


CLEAR has a long track record of working within a citywide partnership of organisations including Southampton City Council, local colleges of further education, and local voluntary and community sector providers. It has carried out local studies on behalf of the Southampton Partnership to identify the problems faced by the growing refugee population. With these partners, CLEAR has built up a detailed understanding and knowledge of the new communities and gained extensive experience of partnership working.

Currently we are part of three strategic partnership arrangements in the city.

Advice Southampton 

Southampton Advice is a partnership of the advice providers in the city that are collaborating together to deliver an adaptable, knowledgeable and fit for purpose advice and information service, meeting the needs of all Southampton residents. The current partners are Citizens Advice, SARC, CLEAR, Age UK, No Limits, EU Welcome and SVS. Please look at the website, designed for the residents of the city which is aimed to be the first contact for anyone seeking advice. CLEAR manages the website on behalf of the partnership.

Avenue Multicultural Centre (AMC)

AMC is a longstanding partnership between CLEAR, British Red Cross, Avenue St Andrews church along with Southampton and Winchester Visitors group. The partnership delivers a multicultural drop in service for asylum seekers and refugees each Friday. (Link)


Chances4change was a partnership which operated 2013-2015 between Southampton City Council Public Health, CLEAR, WEA, West Itchen Charitable Trust, Sure Start Central and Two Saints. The project worked to improve health and well-being in the areas of Healthy Eating, Physical Activity and Mental Well-being in the BME communities in the city. (Link)
