The Voluntary Sector Children and Youth Forum (VSCYF) acts as a meeting point where staff from voluntary sector organisations providing services to children, young people and their families can come together and exchange views and ideas.

The Forum also functions as an opportunity for Tower Hamlets Council representatives to attend and present information relating to the latest funding developments and other initiatives, and to engage in dialogue with voluntary sector agencies.

Tower Hamlets Council funds the Forum. This funding pays for a VSCYF Coordinator, whose job it is to organise the Forum and represent Forum members. See the VSCYPF web-page here.
