VCS At The Heart Of Harrow


Harrow Community Action (HCA), Harrow Voluntary & Community Sector Forum (Harrow VCS Forum), Voluntary Action Harrow Co-operative (VAHC) and Young Harrow Foundation (YHF) have come together for a special event to celebrate the Voluntary & Community Sector (VCS) and the achievements of local support.

We work behind the scenes to ensure that local VCS groups and organisations, like yours, get the support they need.

We help the local VCS in a variety of ways:
- Identifying and filling the gaps
- Raising standards and practice
- Enabling communication and collaboration
- Providing a voice for the local VCS
- Promoting strategic involvement

At this event they'll be presentations from Harrow's four infrastructure organisations where we will describe what we do, our achievements and our future plans. We also seek input from you to understand how the VCS can best be supported in order to make the biggest difference for Harrow residents.

In addition, Rocket Science, who are currently conducting a VCS Review to look at creative ways the sector and Harrow Council can work together and strategically collaborate, will be updating on their progress and asking for input.
