Time and Talents is a charity based in South-East London founded in 1887 by a group of women who felt it was important to use their 'Time and Talents' to help those in need in the Rotherhithe and Bermondsey.
Today we run our own projects, including those for older and younger people and offer our space to be used by a range of groups and individuals as well as providing volunteering opportunities for the whole community.
If you don't already know us you may want to visit our website www.timeandtalents.org.uk to find out more, but to give a flavour:
- Our groups for older people include the Stroke Club and a Social Contact Group for older women with mental health needs.
- We provide a youth project which works with young people enabling them to build their confidence, learn new skills and be creative.
- We match older people with volunteer befrienders who are willing to give their time to go on weekly home visits.
- Our minibus is used to help people who are disabled or less mobile to attend the centre and to go on trips such as our summer trip to Brighton (even if it did rain)!
- We host the local Choral Society and Local History Club as well as classes in T'ai Chi and Yoga.
- People can also hire our building and gardens to hold a celebration.
