Drawing to a close!
We are planning for our volunteer brokerage service, City Action, and all existing programme memberships, to draw to a close by 31 December 2017.
We plan to leave you in safe hands and we’ve put together a list of organisations that can help you to continue your community engagement or skilled volunteering journeys. Find out more in our Continued Support section.
Celebrate 20 years of Impact with us
To celebrate 20 years of the City Action programme, we will be producing an impact report to showcase the fantastic work that has been achieved. If you would like to provide a case study for consideration, please contact Samantha.Lagan@cityoflondon.gov.uk.
We want to say a huge thank you to all of our members past and present that have been part of the programme’s success. We are extremely proud of the achievements and our part in supporting you on your volunteering journey.
Why we’re planning to draw to a close
When City Action launched in 1998, it was a pioneering programme and the first to offer free support to businesses interested in getting involved with their community.
Over 20 years, the programme has evolved, adapting to a changing landscape – always with the intention of filling a gap in provision to facilitate much needed business community partnerships for social impact.
We’ve had an amazing run, but we’ve listened to our members’ feedback and feel that gap is now being filled.
We want to make sure we focus our efforts where there is less support, which is why we are planning to draw to a close by 31 December 2017.
