Voluntary Action Harrow

We wanted to let you know a bit about ourselves and how we got here.

Due to the closure of Harrow Association of Voluntary Services (HAVS), Harrow’s Council for Voluntary Services (Harrow CVS), in 2011 we noticed there was a huge gap in the sector.

Wanting to solve this problem, a group of previous workers who were made redundant, got together and started a workers co-­operative called Voluntary Action Harrow Limited. That’s us!

As a co-operative, we operate under a non-hierarchical structure; everyone matters. When it comes to decision making, governance and salary structures, everyone’s skills are valued equally which creates a more unified approach to running our organisation. Having a more unified organisation means greater support to and for each other as well as higher levels of engagement and productivity. We are able to sustain our method of running Voluntary Action Harrow Limited by a strict adherence to policy, openness and accountability.

Since 2011, our organisation has grown and, today, we are providing an ever-expanding range of services, across a growing geography. Our core aims have stayed the same throughout – to help support, develop and inform Harrow’s voluntary and community activity, and to spread the co-operative movement across West London.
