Time and Talents

Founded in 1887, today Time & Talents runs targeted projects working with people with high levels of need such as isolated elderly people and disabled groups, and universal wider activities and events designed to create a strong, resilient, happy, and supportive community. A core part of their work is providing ways for people to connect and share their time and talents, including a wide range of volunteering opportunities, skills-sharing, and opportunities to socialise and connect neighbours to reduce isolation.

There’s lots to get involved with at T&T, including:

  • Formal/ informal learning opportunities, especially around practical skills like horticulture/gardening and crafts
  • A befriending service for isolated older people, including digital befriending
  • A range of groups to increase social connections and build new friendships:
    • Happy Monday Group – a social group for over 60’s
    • Social Contact Group – for older women with mental health needs
    • Stroke Club, for people recovering from a stroke, and their carers
    • Visually Impaired Club, for people who have experienced loss of sight
    • The Green Team – our gardening club for all
    • Well Now Programme – metal wellbeing activities for adults
  • A wide range of community parties, events, and celebrations – because they’re the best way to bring communities together and build supportive relationships
  • A range of hosted activities including a Local History Society, Rotherhithe and Bermondsey Choral Society, Creative Writing and Visual Arts groups.


T&T has long worked with older people and kids. Now they’re developing an exciting new programme of adult activities including:

  • Ukulele
