Hounslow Council


Voluntary sector development and strategy

We provide a valuable role supporting the development of the voluntary and community sector in Hounslow.  This section covers the main strategies that are in place to support the development of the sector.

Voluntary and Community Sector Strategy 2011-2015

Outlines how we will support the development and success of voluntary and community organisations working in the borough. It introduces key topics, issues and strategic plans up to 2014. As well as recognising key national and local developments in third sector policy, it represents local third sector priorities - often a direct reflection of the needs of the borough's residents.

Corporate Funding Strategy for the Voluntary Sector 2011-2015

This document aims to set a positive direction for funding the voluntary sector in Hounslow. The strategy sets out how we intend to implement a commissioning approach as the best way forward in which services can be provided, improved outcomes specified and quality reviewed as an essential part of the process. We also plan to retain certain funds for distribution as small grants.

Voluntary and Community Sector Survey 2012/13

The Hounslow Voluntary and Community Sector Survey 2012/13 was open for all charities, social enterprises, faith and community groups to give their view on a range of issues alongside information on the state of their organisation.

It took place in December 2012 and ran until early January 2013.

The survey summary and an anonymous version of the data is available to download from this page.
