What is this service?


METRO GAVS supports community organisations with fundraising, finance, governance, premises and events. We also help people set up not-for-profit organisations.

We'll help you develop procedures, making sure your safeguarding processes are effective. You'll get templates to help you develop your policies. We'll provide support by phone, email and in face-to-face meetings.

Is this for me?


Your organisation needs to provide services in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. We'll help you to set up your constitution and safeguarding policies within six months. You'll also need to apply for free METRO GAVS membership within six months after your support starts.
