 Our Christmas Charities which we will support with our special collections:

BEST: Befriending and Support Team for Foreign Nationals in HMP Wandsworth is a voluntary organisation that visits foreign nationals held in HM Prison Wandsworth. We focus on this group because they are particularly vulnerable and often have to cope with serious difficulties and anxieties without support from friends, relatives or having anyone to talk to. We visit everyone in this category who requests a BEST visit for as long as they want our visits to continue, and give them necessary support.

We liaise closely with other organisations working with foreign prisoners and detainees and, where suitable, refer cases to colleagues specialising in associated areas such as law, health care, housing etc., as required. Website – www.bestsupport.org.uk.

Small Steps was founded in 1998 to provide specialist help and support to parents with physically disabled children.

Small Steps is a free service and as a registered charity we do not receive any statutory funding.  Small Steps is solely dependent on grants, donations and fundraising in order to operate.

Pre-school children work on all areas of their development.  Children attending Small Steps sessions have cerebral palsy, other forms of motor impairment, syndromes or sensory impairment.

Small Steps operates from 166 Roehampton Lane SW15 4HR

Registered Charity no. 1150651: website www.smallsteps.org.uk.

 

Traidcraft will be selling Christmas goodies in the run up to Christmas, starting next Sunday. The Advent Calendars have now arrived for those who ordered them.
