Support Us

VCH is a small charity; our work is delivered by a dedicated team of 5 staff members and 15 volunteers.  We receive a grant from the London Borough of Hackney which covers about 20% of our running costs; the rest of our work is funded by charitable donations, grants and contracts.  We are committed to making our resources go as far as possible and finding new and innovative ways of making volunteering better in Hackney.

Spread the Word

  • Join in the conversation about volunteering in Hackney by following us on Twitter or Facebook.
  • Community Outreach: If you’re part of a community group whose members would be interested in volunteering we can give a presentation on how to get involved, with lots of time for questions. Email us at to arrange this.  We can also supply posters and leaflets for display.


We are committed to delivering a personal service, and keeping our Centre open to everyone who lives, works or studies in Hackney. In order to do this we need to pay the bills. You can help by:
