What is South London Cares?

South London Cares is a new community network mobilisng young professionals to hang out with and help their older neighbours in Southwark and Lambeth with a little extra time, practical help, social connection and human companionship.

Our volunteers build meaningful relationships with their older neighbours by helping around the house, and sharing chats, experiences and cultural interactions in groups - building those vital local social networks we all need to improve our lives.

South London Cares is the sister charity of North London Cares, which was established in 2011.
