Greater London Volunteering
Volunteering in London
Greater London Volunteering (GLV) is the regional partnership body for volunteering in London. Members include Volunteer Centres, large Volunteer-involving Organisations and Volunteer Development Agencies. We offer strategic and capacity-building support, coordinate activities and broker services to over 50,000 volunteers and around 9,000 organisations (in Volunteer Centres alone!).
Working at national and regional levels with partners such as TimeBank, Do-it, London Voluntary Service Council (LVSC), and the Greater London Authority (GLA), and at local level with our Volunteer Centres, we seek to inform and influence local, regional and national government, decision-makers and funders on the value of high-quality, coordinated volunteering activity.
We help generate more volunteering activity in Greater London, promote the importance of volunteering to a vibrant and civilised capital and increase the quality of experience in volunteering.
We provide a voice for our members, consulting them and advocating for a strong support structure for volunteering.
And we facilitate networking both internally and externally, so that our members can share best practice and support each other.
