Voluntary Action Camden

Forums and networks

Our online forums and networks bring the voluntary sector together to discuss, share and learn about issues, opportunities and challenges facing Camden residents and the community groups supporting them. They are open to any new or existing voluntary and community groups in Camden. Each forum meets regularly online.

We coordinate some Forums and Networks directly and help to set up or participate in others. You can find out more about these networks below, as well as access past recordings of meetings, notes and helpful resources from the networks we host.

If you want to find out more about working together in Camden, or are interested in setting up a network, partnership or consortia, fill in our form to request support from us.

The CEO Network is for leaders of local voluntary sector organisations in Camden to discuss issues and ideas for the mutual benefit of the VCSE. The Network is there to encourage, guide, support and develop voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector leaders.


The Camden Trustee Network brings together trustees from different Camden VCSE organisations to share experience, good practice, ideas and offer peer support. This is a unique opportunity to encourage collaboration and to generate and nurture ideas which we know is both valued and required by our members.

The Health Inequalities Network supports grassroots BAME, people with disabilities  and other marginalised communities in Camden by connecting them with health providers and policy makers.


A regular meeting with a small group of key borough-wide and infrastructure organisations to pool our knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the VCS in Camden. This group includes Volunteer Centre Camden, Camden Community Centres Consortium (C4), Healthwatch Camden, Camden Giving, Camden Disability Action and Young Camden Foundation.

peer support groups

Our Peer Support groups provide a safe space for others from the same cultural backgrounds with similar experiences to come together, ask questions, learn and share experiences, and generally feel more confident in the community.

Upcoming forums and network events


VAC provides various forums and those have been helpful and supportive because you get to meet other people in the field – people we wouldn’t have got to meet otherwise. We’ve been able to support one another and the forums have also been a good place to influence and allow us to raise issues and give us a voice and articulate what our needs are.
