We want a Southwark where volunteering is easy to access, meaningful, mutually beneficial to all involved and valued by everyone in the borough.

Southwark Volunteering Strategy

Southwark has an incredible array of voluntary and community sector organisations that involve volunteers. The Southwark volunteering strategy is a document developed by Community Southwark, Southwark Council and the local Voluntary and Community sector to make a plan of action of how we are going to create a strong culture of volunteering in the borough.

You can view the Southwark Volunteering Strategy here: Southwark Volunteering Strategy

It is an active document that we review on a regular basis to ensure that we are developing activities that are achieveable and sustainable. 

The Strategy group meet on a quarterly basis to discuss joint work and how we can achieve more together.
