The COIN Database provides local community information and lists both local and national organisations and groups.

What is COIN?

The COmmunity INformation database (COIN) is your one stop shop for information on societies, organisations and clubs that serve the Milton Keynes area.

It can be used to search for local services covering a wide range of subjects from health and wellbeing to leisure activities and social groups.

COIN is available 24 hours a day online.

Searching on COIN

On the COIN search page, simply type in the word or phrase that interests you and click the “Find” button. The results will be listed in alphabetical order.

Click on any of the group headings and you will see more information, or click on the link(s) to be taken to the group’s own online information.

At the bottom of the screen, there is an A-Z listing of all groups held in the COIN database.

Please note that the council is not responsible for any information contained on external websites.

Can’t find something on COIN?

COIN is a constantly changing resource and entries continue to be added and updated. With each change, we aim to create a central point of reference for the Milton Keynes community.

Milton Keynes Libraries does not maintain private contact details for listed groups and any new entries submitted for inclusion in the COIN Database can only be accepted with at least one valid online link which signposts visitors to up-to-date information.

To suggest a group or organisation for adding to COIN please complete the online form or fill in a paper form (PDF, 265KB) and hand it in at any of the Milton Keynes Libraries.

If your suggestion is accepted and the information validated, the entry will be added to COIN. 

Please note that entries are accepted at the discretion of Milton Keynes Libraries.

Associated Directories

As the database expands, COIN will include links to associated directories with specialist information. This aims to help you find the information you want as quickly as you can and to provide you directly with related services and support.

ADULT SOCIAL CARE HUB - Information, advice and assessment for your care and support needs including the searchable Adult Social Care and Health Directory.
