About the Voluntary Sector Network
Redbridge Voluntary Sector Network provides a monthly forum for staff and volunteers from voluntary and community sector groups in the borough.
We meet on the second Wednesday of each month, except for January and August, in Redbridge Central Library. Meetings include:
- an informal sandwich lunch, allowing people to chat and network
- reports from partnerships involving local voluntary organisations
- information about the work of public sector bodies which affects the voluntary sector
- speakers on topics affecting local voluntary organisations
You don't have to register or let us know you're coming - as long as you're from a charity or community group based in Redbridge, or that works with Rednridge people, just turn up.
