DRescue

DRescue

DRescue (formerly known as Divine Rescue) is a registered charity that was inspired & driven by the faith of Catherine Msoni, & Lucklyn Ezedom, in 2005.

Initially the project began from a bench in East Street, Southwark, with the help of a committed team of volunteers; support of Southwark Police; the former NDC & ‘Red Ochre’.

DRescue’s mission statement aims to touch & change lives through training & mentoring; supporting clients through hard times, e.g. helping the homeless & substance abuse victims to find their pathway through social support & care to achieve their goals.  To provide excellent services for the people we work for, & to develop new services where we know there is a need & that we are best placed to meet it.

In 2010, DRescue moved to its current location at Thurlow Lodge Community Centre & maintains a strong bond with their clientele, the community & continues to fundraise.

We offer our clients support to meet their needs e.g:

  • Keyworkers who assess clients needs & cater our services to match that need, whether it be in-house,  through referral or partner organisations
  • Outreach, where we mostly provide sandwiches & introduce our services to the clients in Southwark & the surrounding areas
  • Training to help empower & enable clients to move on & potentially get back into mainstream society
  • Support through clothes that are donated by local residents & local businesses
  • Free meals which include: breakfast, lunch & afternoon tea.  Our current times are: Monday – Friday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
