Working with the voluntary, community and faith sector

We are committed to working in partnership with the Voluntary, Community and Faith (VCF) sector in Wandsworth in order to raise awareness and standards around the safeguarding of children and young people, and to strengthen working links between this sector and statutory agencies.


The role of voluntary, community and faith organisations

Voluntary, community and faith organisations are some of the largest providers of services to children, young people and their families in Wandsworth, and therefore play a significant role in safeguarding. They offer a range of services including school holiday and after-school activities, art, sport and play opportunities, as well as religious instruction and cultural enrichment. Some organisations also offer family support, counselling and therapeutic services.
