Role with the voluntary sector

One of the most significant roles of a Lord-Lieutenant is to support and encourage charities and organisations working on a voluntary basis for the benefit of the community. The voluntary sector plays a significant role in all aspects of life within Berkshire, making life better for many of its residents. The Lord-Lieutenant James Puxley is acutely conscious of this role and takes a particular interest in supporting and promoting many of the groups who work tirelessly throughout Berkshire.

He holds positions in a range of charities and voluntary groups based in Berkshire, supporting them with his advice, attendance at meetings and participation in their activities.

He is particularly supportive of the Berkshire Community Foundation that raises funds and makes grants available to many local charities and community groups across Berkshire.

The Lord-Lieutenant is a Trustee of the Prince Philip Trust Fund for Windsor and Maidenhead.

The Lord-Lieutenant’s work is underpinned by the considerable work undertaken by the Vice Lord-Lieutenant and Deputy Lieutenants in the voluntary field through support, mentoring and promotion and in many cases long term involvement with specific charities.
