New Tower Hamlets funding for Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations

Get involved, give us your views and help prioritise the new grant funding for the voluntary and community sector.

The Council's new Strategic Plan (2022-26) sets out priorities, actions, and commitments to partnership work in the borough for the next four years. Supporting the local voluntary and community sector is a key element of working in partnership to deliver this Plan. Our partnership Voluntary and Community Sector Strategy 2020-24 has a commitment for 'a more resilient and sustainable sector' and our new funding programme will contribute to this priority.

We recognise the important role voluntary and community sector organisations play in supporting residents with many important services, including playing a crucial response during the pandemic and subsequent recovery. In the current climate VCS organisations are supporting residents through the cost-of-living crisis with a range of services and act as a first call of support for our residents.

Tower Hamlets has approximately 1,300 VCS organisations and the diversity of these organisations help develop the social fabric of our borough. It develops relationship between residents and organisations and provides opportunities for people to cultivate their imagination and interests, allowing them to flourish. To this end our vision is to 'support and invest in a thriving and diverse VCS to enable it to improve outcomes for Tower Hamlets residents'.

The Council is keen to hear your views about the new funding proposed, what you feel are the most important priorities for the borough. This engagement is specifically seeking views on two proposed future grant programmes for the period October 2023- March 2027, the Mayor's Community grants programme and the Small Grants programme. However, you will also be able to provide any further comments you want to share and we value all your feedback.

So, tell us what you think by completing this short survey which should take less than 10 minutes and help shape a shared vision and ambition for our borough.

This survey will close on Tuesday 31 January 2023 and will inform our detailed specification for the various areas of our new grants programme.

This survey is part of a range of activities we are doing to hear your voice which will include workshops and outreach to hear a diverse range of voices. Information on those will be updated on a dedicated webpage https://www.towerhamlets.gov.uk/CouncilGrantsVCS and on the council's social media channels.
