Christian Care

Christian CARE is a charity working in the London Borough of Merton. They are a group of 40 volunteers from 16 different churches offering help to anyone whatever their race, colour or religion. Each year over 150 families, whose lives are in crisis, are supported.

They are always in need of food, clothes and furniture, so please follow the link to their website for further details and their latest requirements.

Faith in Action

By collecting harvest gifts, we continue to support Merton Faith in Action, who every Wednesday and Friday throughout the year, run the Merton Homeless Drop-in with the help of volunteers. On average about 65 homeless and vulnerably housed people attend each session. These are mainly men, and a few women, for whom little other help is available. As well as a warm and friendly welcome they can get a high-quality hot lunch, internet access and help with filling in on-line forms, and help with moving on. Learn more about this charity at the FiA website.
