Southwark Diocesan Welcare
Strengthening families since 1894
Registered Charity Number: 1107859
Big Lottery Funding Awarded to Welcare!
We are so thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a four year grant by the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund for the development of our Child and Family Support Services.
The funding will enable us to re-launch our child and family support services in the inner London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark providing a range of practical and emotional help to vulnerable parents and their children up to the age of 13. We have also been awarded a grant to employ a Family Support Worker in Bromley to develop and expand the role of volunteers enabling children and families impacted by domestic abuse, poverty, family breakdown and mental health problems to improve and rebuild their lives.
We will begin our recruitment campaign for paid staff and volunteers in mid-September and our new work in these areas will start in January 2016.
