ABOUT US

Who we are.

BCFForum was established in the mid-1990s as an independent network of local voluntary groups working with children and young people as well as their families, offering practical information and support on improving the lives of children and families in London Borough of Bromley.

BCFF has over 250 voluntary organisations and community groups that deliver services in health and social welfare or education issues such as, learning or physical disabilities or domestic abuse whilst others are more general like faith and uniformed groups, many of which do not have the time, capacity or expertise to easily keep up-to-date with changes in legislation, good practice or seek funding opportunities. BCFForum provides a platform through which to connect, deliver training, share news and information from its members and associated members via its social media platforms, newsletters and networking events to the wider community. 

We also work closely with statutory agencies to deliver and promote projects that improve the lives of children and families. We represent the sector on various Local Authority and strategic boards including the Voluntary Sector Strategic Network, Bromley Safeguarding Children Partnership and the Children’s Executive Board, working to ensure we can keep our members fully informed whilst representing their interests at strategic level.

What we do.

We provide our members with regular e-bulletins containing information about events, news, training and funding opportunities.

We hold four open forum meetings each year that provide further opportunities for our members to share information and network as well as hear from relevant speakers. We work in partnership with statutory organisations including the Local Authority and Health.

We represent our members on Bromley Safeguarding Children Partnership and the Voluntary Sector Strategic Network. We host a yearly Masonic Biker’s Santa Run – This is an amazing event where the West Kent Masons dressed as Santa on their Harley Davidsons drive through Bromley bringing hundreds of toys and games to the Forum to share amongst our charities and groups enabling them to help some of Bromley’s most vulnerable families to experience a better Christmas.
