Lambeth’s Voluntary and Community Organisations

Lambeth’s Voluntary and Community Organisations survey

A steering group of interested representatives of the Voluntary and Community Sector has been holding discussions with the local authority to determine the future support needs of the voluntary sector in the borough.

As part of the discussions, a consultation of all voluntary and community organisations operating in the borough has been commissioned. The consultation is aimed at eliciting information on the support needs of voluntary and community organisations so as to be able to form a view on:

– Building relationships, networks and trust between VCS organisations
– Helping VCS organisations to be resilient, especially considering public sector funding reductions
– Leveraging funding and resources into the borough
– Ensuring the VCS has a voice and can represent their communities in strategic partnerships

We are working on a very short time frame and would be grateful if you could complete the questionnaire by 18 May 2017 so that your views will be heard. 

Please complete the online survey at /lambethvcs

Please, circulate this survey widely in your networks to enable others to participate.

The results of the survey will be discussed at a conference of the sector to be held on 15 June 2017.

If you require further information or have any questions please email Maxine M. James

Your views on being a part of your local community

The Southwark CAN website is coming up to a year old! We have told stories, shared events and met you in your communities to talk about how you can make change together.

We were just wondering… CAN you spare 5 minutes to share your views on community life in Southwark – think of it as a Birthday present to your CAN community!

The survey will take no more than a few minutes of your time (we promise!) but will give you an opportunity to tell us about how you get involved in your community, or not, and your views on the CANs.

We CAN repay the favour in helping support another year of community activity with all of the excellent activists and community groups in your local area 🙂

If you want more information, want help getting involved in your community or have any questions about Community Action Networks contact: or give us a call on 020 7358 7020.

Thank you – you wonderful Southwarker!
