Main Voluntary Organisations Forum

Main Voluntary Organisations Forum

Do you want to work alongside other organisations to strengthen both yourself and the local voluntary sector?

The Main VOF aims to bring voluntary and community groups in Kensington and Chelsea together to work on issues that are of mutual interest.

The forum's objectives are:

  • to share information on local and national developments of interest to voluntary and community groups, including new funding opportunities;
  • to elect people to represent the voluntary sector in discussions with the Borough Council and other statutory agencies and to partnership boards;
  • to establish sub-groups, sub-committees and forums for organisations working with specific client groups and on particular issues;
  • to act as the community network for Kensington and Chelsea in relation to the Kensington & Chelsea Partnership, the Community Strategy and the Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy.

The local voluntary and community sector has long since been a staple part of the community, delivering a wide range of services mainly within the preventative field that seeks to improve the social and economic wellbeing of residents.  

Whilst KCSC recognise the challenges that face residents requires a sector that is responsive to those challenges and is able to continuously adapt to changing needs, we also advocate that a strong and stable sector is what's required.

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) group created a highlight report for Kensington and Chelsea.

The report is a summary of the public health challenges and opportunities for those living in, working in or visiting the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. This highlight report puts the existing programme of Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) into context, and encourages local priority setting around public health and wellbeing. It links to a number of information sources that can be used for more detailed information.
