London Voluntary Service Council takes final step towards a hub for London

After 107 years supporting London’s thousands of civil society organisations so they can meet the needs of their communities, London Voluntary Service Council (LVSC) has transferred its remaining functions over to Greater London Volunteering (GLV) in preparation for the establishment of a hub for London. 

LVSC started life in 1910 as the Social Welfare Association for London. Its name and direction has changed over the years to reflect the changing nature, language and needs of London’s people and civil society. LVSC’s involvement with The Way Ahead has been the latest example of how the Council has tried to best meet the needs of civil society groups.  The findings from many consultations and working groups have informed LVSC’s conclusion that the best way to meet the needs of the many different organisations in London is to combine the functions of LVSC and GLV and create a more responsive pan London support network – the London hub. The proposal has secured funding from City Bridge Trust.
