What we do
The VCSE sector in London is huge with an estimated
120,000 organisations ranging from large multinationals like Oxfam
to entirely volunteer run play schemes - in fact it is estimated
that 80% of this activity is carried out by volunteers in
non-registered organisations, working at the grassroots in the
heart of their communities. It employees over 250,000 people
and contributes some £19 billion to London's economy.
Our Vision is of communities being at the centre of
a fair and prosperous London.
