The third blog of Volunteers' Week is written by Kirsty, who explains how the variety of our Social Club programme has taken her from birthday celebrations with Blanche to lively discussions about Mary Poppins with Diana!
Emily has been volunteering with South London Cares for over 4 years and in that time has attended a whopping 64 social clubs. Here she tells us what first motivated her to get involved and what’s kept her coming back...
In our latest blog we meet Matt, who recently joined South London Cares as our Volunteer & Outreach coordinator. He explains what brought him to the role, describes his first impressions, and reflects on his experiences so far.
Winter can be a doubly isolating time of year. So for the fifth year in a row, from October to March we were out and about helping older neighbours to stay warm, healthy, active and connected – and part of the community. See the infographic and read the report here.
The clocks have gone back, the days are getting lighter and longer, and the seasons are finally changing. Change is the theme of this month's story. While the warmer weather is a welcome change, it's truly inspiring to hear how some of our neighbours have coped with more significant changes to their lives.
