Community Southwark is the umbrella organisation for the voluntary and community sector in Southwark. Community Southwark has merged with Volunteer Southwark, and their mission is to enable others to take steps to change and improve things for communities in Southwark. This applies to people who want to make a change in their local area, or to people who want to volunteer, or to community groups which need a helping hand. Community Southwark will continue to provide a voice for voluntary and community groups and support those organisations which provide services for residents in Southwark.
There are a number of ways to can get involved with Community Southwark’s different areas of work, including: becoming a member, signing up as a VCS Rep, corporate volunteering, and joining their Community Action Networks.
Community Southwark have a number of useful resources on their website, along with details of training taking place locally.
