Ensure that the VCSE sector is recognised and included in GLA policy and delivery

AskOneIcon

LVSC estimate that there at least 60,000 active VCSE organisations, all of whom contribute to the wellbeing, citizenship, capacity and economic vitality of London.

 

Yet only a fraction of this vast reservoir of largely unfunded local initiatives feature in GLA policy and delivery programmes. At a time of austerity, when every service is under pressure, the ability to understand the scale of the VCSE sector contribution and put in place the means to harness it must become an urgent priority.

 

We ask the new Mayor to:

 

  • Ensure that the VCSE sector is recognised and included in GLA policy and delivery

  • Commission a thorough review of the social impact of the VCSE's activity

  • Oversee and promote strategic GLA engagement with the entire sector on future delivery of services
