Aveley Village Community Forum

Aveley is a village on the borders of London & Essex and suffers from great deprivation, especially with the skill levels of our young people. Aveley Village Community Forum is an independent community group, run wholly by members of the village, limited by guarantee and a registered charity interested in making a real difference to the community.
As a Forum we provide a way for the public to raise their own views and concerns about local issues, work with local people to increase their abilities to participate more fully in their community,help increase community capacity by running events or signposting routes into training or participation, strengthen local community networks and develop constructive and effective partnerships between local people and the Council, work in partnership with public and private organisations to provide and increase services needed locally and replace those recently removed and work with local young people to enhance their skills and abilities and assist them to meet their aspirations. We also run a Youth & Community Centre as a focus and base for our regeneration activities.
Formed in 2002 as part of Thurrock Council’s Area Governance initiative AVCF became a company limited by guarantee in September 2008 and a registered charity in November 2008
