Ealing Community and Voluntary Service (ECVS) is a registered local charity and has been supporting voluntary and community sector (VCS) groups in Ealing for over 30 years.
In the last two years we have also offered a support service to voluntary and community groups in Hounslow, in partnership with Hillingdon CVS.
We offer a wide range of practical support services to VCS groups:
We also manage core local VCS databases for Ealing and for Hounslow. If you are a new group and would like to be added to our databases sign up as a member or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Plus if you are an existing group and your details change do let us know so our information about you is up to date.
But as well as practical services we support VCS partnership work and a strong local ‘VCS voice’. We are the lead organisation for Ealing Community Network, which has been going for 12 years and has over 450 VCS member groups. For the last two years we have also supported a new Hounslow Community Network, which already has over 300 VCS member groups.
ECVS also coordinates West London Network which brings together VCS reps across seven boroughs: Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hammersmith and Fulham, Hillingdon and Hounslow.
As well as practical VCS support and VCS strategic partnerships, ECVS goes beyond traditional CVS roles and also supports a range of frontline work with residents and communities. On this website you can read about our work on:
