Support for voluntary and community organisations

Support for community and voluntary organisations

Hounslow’s Community Partnership’s Unit is committed to providing the highest standards of support and information to voluntary and community organisations in the borough.

Here are the main ways that we offer support:

Hounslow Connect

Hounslow Connect  provides the best guide to all of the voluntary and community groups across the borough providing support, advice and important services to our residents.

If you are a  voluntary organisation, a community group, a tenant’s or residents’ group or any other group that provides services in your community we would encourage you to add yourself to Hounslow Connect
This is completely FREE and will take you no more than 5 – 10 minutes to complete. There is no better way to raise awareness of your group and promote the work that you do:

  • Create your own personalised webpage
  • Add details of your group – such as the services you provide, links to your website and your logo if you have one
  • You are now live for everyone in Hounslow to see

If you would like more information please email:

Venues for hire

Across the London Borough of Hounslow there is a very wide selection of venues available for community use.
The facilities that are on offer cater for all types of event and activity and range from small rooms and studios to large public halls.
Hounslow Connect contains detailed information about venues for hire including booking arrangements, prices and opening times

Hounslow Voice Network (HVN)

HVN aims to bring together voluntary and community groups across the borough and by working together have a stronger local ‘voluntary sector voice’.
HVN holds regular forums/networking meetings which are open to all members and allows the discussion of issues affecting the local voluntary and community sector (VCS) with representatives from statutory services such as the Council, NHS and Police. HVN meetings are also a great way to meet and network with other local groups.

Ealing & Hounslow Community Voluntary Service

The Ealing & Hounslow CVS offers support, information and advice for voluntary and community sector groups operating in the borough.
This includes not-for-profit or non-statutory organisations working for the benefit of local residents, such as housing associations, social enterprises and community interest companies.       

Ealing and Hounslow Volunteer Centre

Ealing & Hounslow Volunteer Centre supports VCSE groups to recruit and retain volunteers.  They can help you ensure you have the right policies and structures in place to provide well supported volunteer roles.  They can also help you to draw up clear role descriptions and promote the role across the borough so that you attract volunteers that best match your needs.
