Small Groups Meet Up

This Small Groups Meet Up brings together people from community groups that are either completely run by volunteers or have up to three paid members of staff.

Meet Ups are an opportunity to network with other small/informal/grassroots organisations in Southwark, to share your experiences and expertise and who knows, maybe even collaborate on some ideas.


Each quarter we will bring groups together to discuss a key topic such as funding, premises, safeguarding, how to get basic policies in place etc. We will aim to have guest speakers where appropriate, introduce you to funders and other great contacts to have, and provide some practical tips and support.

The Small Groups Meet Up will:

  • Help you to meet with and learn from other groups in the borough
  • Help you to develop your group in a way that suits you
  • Provide useful information and resources through guest speakers, workshops and online resources.

All this for FREE!

What is the Small Groups Meet Up?

Southwark is a borough bursting with community activity! We know it can be difficult to find the time to develop your group and so we have developed a thriving Small Groups Meet Up. It offers an informal and flexible space where small and volunteer run groups can meet each other, get support and share information. Run by small groups for small groups, come and join us!

These meet ups are guided by you, so let us know what topics you would like to cover.
