Trusts & foundations

South London Cares is a community network operating in the boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth. We aim to meet three key objectives:

  • Reducing loneliness and isolation amongst older people (and younger people alike);
  • Improving the wellbeing, confidence, skills and resilience of participants so they can navigate a rapidly changing city;
  • Bringing people together across social and generational divides

We have a growing pool of evidence that shows that our community network model really works, improving people's live and building a sense of community. To see some of our data and read case studies, please visit The Difference We Make page.

“I sit by my TV a lot. But I can't hear or see much of it so it's like being by myself. It's so nice to spend an evening chatting to people.” Mary, 93,


We're so grateful for the support of the many trusts, foundations and charities which make our work possible. From grants which support our Social Clubs to our core costs, we couldn't do any of this work without them and we are proud that they have chosen to invest in our vision.

If you are from a trust or foundation and may be interested in supporting South London Cares' work or expansion, please contact our founder Alex on [email protected] We'd love to hear from you.
