Hillingdon Association of Voluntary Services (HAVS)

HAVS is an independent voluntary organisation formed and run by local charities, voluntary and community groups.

We aim to:

  • promote the development and support of the voluntary & community sector in the London Borough of Hillingdon;
  • support and develop links between statutory and voluntary/community sectors;
  • act as a focal point and provide a forum for the voluntary/community sector.

Our vision is:

A vibrant, empowered sustainable and developing voluntary and community sector.
