What is Cambridgeshire.net?
To find out more about Cambridgeshire.net, please refer to our About section.
Who maintains the Cambridgeshire.net community database?
Cambridgeshire County Council maintains and administers the database, but the information in the system is provided and maintained by registered contributors on behalf of their organisation.
What information does the database include?
Cambridgeshire.net lists over 4500 Cambridgeshire organisations including voluntary groups, self-help groups, charities, council services relevant to the community, and loose groupings of individuals who meet and may welcome new members.
It also lists hundreds of events, regular activities and courses run by these organisations.
Note that some commercial organisations are included. These organisations are included where information about them adds value to the system. They may have been added specifically to appeal to a particular audience, such as younger people, or judged to complement the information and services available from the public, voluntary and charitable sectors. We reserve the right to decide what material may or may not be included on the site (see the Terms and Conditions for details).
Is the information up to date?
Every organisation record displays the date it was last updated. Contributors are contacted annually to review their organisation's entry. If an organisation fails to respond to any of the three reminders, the organisation's entry is removed from the website. Contributors are encouraged to visit the site and update their record whenever something has changed that they want to publicise.
