Projects & Networks

LVSC's policy work is informed by the views of our network members to ensure that policy reflects the needs of London's voluntary and community sector and the people they work for.

LVSC currently hosts five networks

London Voluntary Sector Forum (LVSF)

LVSF is one of three networks making up the peer learning component of LVSC's London Councils' funded 'London for All' partnership project.

Membership of LVSF includes pan-London and cross-borough voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations as well as borough level infrastructure organisations to ensure that we have good local knowledge.

London CVS Directors' Network

Also delivered though the 'London for All' project, this forum is where London Councils for Voluntary Service directors come together to learn from each other, share information and intelligence and discuss issues linking the local with the regional.

London Employment and Skills Policy Network

Open to all voluntary and community sector organisations with an interest in London employment and skills policy issues.

Members of the LESPN receive monthly e-bulletins, invitations to events and training that allow them to meet policy makers and other employment and skills providers (including those from the private sector)

London Safer Future Communities VCSE Network

Open to all voluntary, community and social enterprise sector (VCSE) organisations with an interest in criminal justice, crime prevention and community safety. This network aims to profvide a formal engagement mechanism between London's VCSE sector and the Mayor's Office for Police and Crime, as well as other regional agencies working in the criminal justice system.


We also provide a monthly health e-bulletin to find out about the Department of Health's recent updates on health and social care policy in London.
