Central Southwark Community Hub
The Foodbank is a store of non-perishable food donated by the local community. We partner with frontline professionals such as schools, GPs, Citizens Advice Bureaux, social services, and other advice and support agencies who then become partners and refer local residents to our service.
A food parcel of 3 days food is given to the client when they arrive at the Foodbank centre depending on the size of the family.
We offer a warm welcoming atmosphere and tea/coffee, biscuits with free advice and signposting to other appropriate support services, helping to address the underlining cause.
Please note clients need to be referred to Margaret Taribo (firstname.lastname@example.org) before a visit is made.
Holiday Activity Club facilities for children who receive free school meals during term times,but in the holidays would have to go without.
With our partners in the community, we aim to provide Holiday learning, food and play for families who need it most. Our objectives are to improve social inclusion, family nutrition and well being. We hope to reduce financial and emotional strain for the families who will attend the sessions.
Whether you’re a parent with toddlers, a shopper on the way home, or retired and looking for company, come and enjoy our relaxed atmosphere and tea/coffee and biscuits/cakes.
As intermediaries of Turn2us we help people in financial need gain access to welfare benefit, charitable and other financial help – online, by phone and face-to-face through us
