Through the creation of Parish Hubs, Caritas Southwark representatives will be able to work both independently and alongside existing charitable groups and organisations to put faith into action within four themed projects. As well as taking their work into the local community, Hub members will be encouraged to come together to reflect on their work, share experiences and pray together.
Migrants and Refugees
Caritas Southwark aims to support and welcome migrants and refugees since the Church seeks to be the spiritual home of all, no matter the geographical location.
Supporting Young People
Caritas Southwark will focus on identifying young people in our parishes and schools, who are vulnerable and could be led to knife crime, gangs. drugs and similar activities that put their welfare and future, and that of others, at risk.
Poverty Relief Programmes & Food Bank Support
Caritas Southwark aims to strengthen foodbank schemes in parishes, thereby supporting those who are struggling locally with low income and financial restrictions.
