Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership (VCSEP)
Community Links Bromley is pleased to be part of the Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership (VCSEP).
The VCSEP was formed based on learnings from the domestic crises of 2017, including Grenfell, and a sector-wide ambition to deliver a more coordinated response during emergencies. Right now the focus is on responding to the Covid-19 crisis, but the long-term ambition is to establish a legacy which enables the voluntary and community sector, government and statutory agencies to work better together to ensure the country’s most vulnerable communities get the right support at the right time in an emergency.
Bromley Third Sector Enterprise
Bromley Third Sector Enterprise (BTSE) is one of the partners in One Bromley, a partnership of health and social care services working together to provide more joined up and improved care for people who live in Bromley.
BTSE is a highly respected, award winning consortium of local charities and an increasing number of Associate Members working in the London Borough of Bromley.
