Core functions
Our mission is to provide a comprehensive volunteering infrastructure service to non-profit groups and to communities in Tower Hamlets, to increase the quality, quantity and impact of volunteering in the borough.  
 
Our 5 core functions are:
 
Brokerage – ensuring that the general public and all sectors are better informed about and have access to an effective and efficient brokerage service
 
Good Practice Development – helping organisations to improve or attain positive consistency in their volunteering programmes
 
Developing Volunteering Opportunities - increasing and improving the quantity, quality, and diversity of volunteering locally
 
Voice of Volunteering – creating an increased awareness of the issues impacting on volunteering
 
Strategic Development of Volunteering - engagement with local networks and decision-makers to create a positive environment in which volunteering is flourishing.
 
We also host the Voluntary Sector Children and Youth Forum (VSCYF), supporting voluntary and community sector organisations that provide services to children and young people in Tower Hamlets. Most of these organisations involve volunteers in their work.
