About Southwark Churches Care
Southwark Churches Care was started by the churches of Southwark back in 1994. We are a small voluntary organisation aiming to support isolated, older people (aged 65+) in Southwark through one-to-one befriending, social groups and helping with small practical tasks. Our services are available to those who are particularly vulnerable and/or isolated, regardless of faith or culture. We offer our services in the following postcodes in Southwark:
SE1, SE5, SE15, SE16, SE17 and roads in the London Borough of Southwark in SE8 & SE11.
In 2010/11 we had a total of 96 volunteers. Many of these volunteers are recruited from Southwark congregations, with a significant number coming to us from the wider community.
