What we do
The VCSE sector in London is huge with an estimated 80,000
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.
