WHO WE ARE
We are the umbrella body for the voluntary and community sector in Southwark. We support charities, community groups and individuals through capacity building, networks and training.

The difference we make

Community Southwark exists to support the voluntary and community sector in Southwark. In order to do this we work hard across our different teams, running training workshops, facilitating networks, sharing information and helping people start volunteering, are some of our key areas. But are we effective? Are we doing a good job?  



This video above shows four of our member charities helping us to answer these questions. Helen Rapheal from Habits CIC, Jack Hartshorn from Kingswood Arts, Hadi Shariff from Panjshir Aid and Cat Smith from Community Tech Aid, all talk about the support that they have had from Community Southwark and the impact that this has had on their charities.
