About Compost

We are a team of community development professionals who have been working in east London’s Voluntary Community Sector  for many years.


We came together around a shared concern about the diminishing infrastructure support for the Voluntary and Community Sector, across London. Recognising the important role this plays in maintaining a robust and thriving voluntary sector we decided to map out a menu of services that we believe will be of most use to a range of organisations.
