Voluntary Action Lewisham is a membership charity providing leadership and support to charities, community groups and social enterprises working to enhance the lives of Lewisham residents.
Our vision and mission
We want to see strong, vibrant communities that can take their place at the heart of every sphere of Lewisham life.
Our mission is to build a resilient voluntary and community and social enterprise sector that is responsive to the diverse needs of our local communities.
A movement for change
Lewisham's social sector is as diverse as the communities it serves. Charities, social entrepreneurs and community groups all work to make a difference in their local community or particular group, and together they form part of a groundswell movement for positive change in the borough.
What we do
We work to make services better and to strengthen the voice of the sector on the issues that affect the people our members serve. We also coordinate the signposting of volunteers with local organisations.
