Bringing service providers together in Colindale

The Colindale Consortium was established in 2014 to bring together the different service providers in Grahame Park. In 2016 members decided to extend this to include the wider Colindale.

Currently the Colindale Consortium has 28 members, made up of small local organisations and larger public organisations who provide services to improve the economic and social well-being of people living in the area.

The forum provides a space for organisations, groups & charities to offer each other different kinds of support. Groups can pool resources and expertise and work together to bring much needed funding to Grahame Park and Colindale. The Consortium can now boast many partnership successes.

The Colindale Consortium also played an important part in the Grahame Park Neighbourhood Change model and pilot. Findings identified the positive feedback the Consortium’s commitment to partnership working.
