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.
