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 first Wednesday of each month, except for January and August.

These meetings are a space to provide updates, information and insights on the community and voluntary sector in Redbridge.
