We're thrilled to present South London Cares' Annual Report for 2017/18. It's packed with details on what we do and why we do it, and stories and beautiful photos of older and younger neighbours sharing time, laughter and new experiences in Southwark and Lambeth.
Together, over four and a half years since we started our work in 2014, some 2,600 older and 3,400 younger Londoners have done so much together – sharing 154,000 interactions and 23,000 hours across our rapidly changing landscape, through our Social Clubs, Love Your Neighbour, Outreach and Community Fundraising programmes.
That helps older and younger people alike to feel part of their changing city, rather than left behind by it. It helps people to connect to the past, the present and the future, and therefore feel belonging, purpose and power. And it helps people to feel community and togetherness, at a time when we need community and togetherness.
Thank you to everyone who makes this work possible – from funders, to local businesses, to partners in the proud voluntary sector and, most importantly, the older and younger people who share time every day through South London Cares. We're so grateful for your support.
