Greater London Volunteering supports London voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations that help people into work, following the transfer of the Employment and Skills project from London Voluntary Service Council on 1st October.

Through our Employment and Skills Network of over 800 members, we keep the VCSE sector informed on important developments, provide a platform for engagement with policy makers and the private sector, as well as information and support on funding opportunities to deliver employment and skills support provision in the capital.

As part of our work, we deliver:

  • Monthly e-bulletins rounding up relevant news, events and opportunities
  • Engagement with policy makers and private sector organisations, including representing the VCSE on strategic forums
  • Networking and information events around specific funding opportunities, including the European Social Fund
  • Research and policy on the employment and skills challenges facing Londoners and the VCSE organisations who support them

Our project is funded by Trust for London.

To get involved by signing up to our newsletter, as well as receive more information, please contact Jonathan Slater (Employment and Skills Policy & Project Manager) on

Employment and Skills Report

Supporting Londoners into quality work is one of the great challenges facing our city today. The ‘Many Hands’ report presents the findings of a LVSC research project examining the employment and skills challenges facing individuals, existing employability support, and the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations active in this area. You can view and download the report from the following link.
