Social Action

Volunteering Hounslow is calling out to individuals and local community groups in the borough who are looking to bring about a positive change in the borough through Social Action. This will involve working closely with community groups to support the development of one-off, or a series of one-off events, that will then be delivered by a team of local volunteers.

Volunteering Hounslow defines Social Action as:
“Empowering people to tackle community needs and engage in improvements of their area with lasting effects”

Areas of social engagement could include the following: Health, Ageing and Care; Young People and Social Mobility; Rehabilitation; Community Action; Employment and Prosperity; and Digital.

A previous example of Social Action in Hounslow has included The Reach Academy Allotment Clear-out in June 2015 where a group of sixty Duke of Edinburgh students from Reach Academy helped Flourish, a local organisation, clear out a disused allotment space. The Space was then created into a Roman style kitchen garden for young adults with learning disabilities by Flourish. There was even a talk from a local lecturer who informed the students about the health benefits of a Roman diet.

If you believe your organisation could benefit from social action, or if you would like to know more, then please email Rupal at rupal.shah@groundwork.org.uk or call her on 07903752826.
