The Community Partnerships Unit (CPU) manages the Council’s Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector funding programme, ‘on-the ground’ community development and capacity building programmes, development and implementation of the Prevent Strategy work stream and the council’s community cohesion and community engagement strategies.
It works to achieve these three strategic outcomes:
Strategic outcome 1: Empowered residents and communities actively shaping their local area and enhancing civic pride
Strategic outcome 2: Enabling independence and resilience by building the skills, resources and capacity of residents, neighbourhoods and communities
Strategic outcome 3: A vibrant, self-sustaining and ambitious VCSE sector in Hounslow
You can find out more about the support available to the VCSE sector and the work of the team on the Council's website.
