LCEP: Event Planner

LCEP event planner needed

APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED – please head to our job board for more voluntary sector opportunities in London.

The London Communities Emergencies Partnership (LCEP) is looking for an Event Planner. London Plus co-chairs LCEP alongside the Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership (VCSEP).


When there is a major emergency in London, the response needs to be quick, coordinated, and effective. LCEP makes this happen. We are a partnership of voluntary and community sector organisations in London, ensuring support is available for the sector to respond to emergencies, learn from the past and prepare for the future.

Working together saves lives. We build trust between charities and community groups with others in the faith, equalities, funding, and statutory sectors. This means that together, we can navigate and harness the strength and diversity of the voluntary and community sector during an emergency. Tackling an emergency can be daunting, but by supporting organisations to develop their skills, share their insights and access resources, everyone can be better prepared.

This way, we’re all working together for the benefit of Londoners at risk from or impacted by emergencies. To achieve the above, since launching in October 2022 we have delivered several online events, such as a winter preparedness session, a table-top emergency scenario exercise, and quarterly partnership meetings to help partners to share information and resources and build relationships. We are now looking to deliver an in-person event in Spring 2024.
