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 40 years.
We also offer a support service to voluntary and community groups in Hounslow.
We offer a wide range of practical support services to VCS groups:
We also manage core local VCS databases for Ealing and for Hounslow.
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 550 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:
