Overview of the voluntary and community sector in Hillingdon

Figures from a review published in 2014 found that 533 charities were registered in Hillingdon.

The review was commissioned by London Voluntary Service Council (LVSC) as part of the London for All programme using open data which was accurate in October 2013. Registered charities that are not traditionally perceived as charities, such as housing associations, trade associations, independent schools, faith groups etc were filtered out.

The figure does not include unregistered voluntary and community groups indicating that the amount of community activity is far greater when you add sports and scouts clubs, self help groups and small grassroots organisations etc.

The council works with many voluntary sector groups to provide services to residents. Different departments commission voluntary sector providers to deliver specific services as well as provide grants for particular activities.

Voluntary sector grants and support sits within the partnerships team.

What we do:

  • Provide advice and support to organisations we fund
  • Liaise between council departments and the sector and advise the council on its policy with regards to the sector
  • Work in partnership with other council teams, and agencies to increase and improve quality of services for residents, and support the growth of the sector
