Blackfriars Settlement needs extra pairs of hands to help with a big move into new premises.
During the week of 24th June and between 8 and 18 July they need help to pack and label equipment and furniture in readiness for the office move that will take place beginning Friday 19 July 2013. You can volunteer individually or as a team to help them make a seamless transition to their new home.
Blackfriars Settlement has been offering a huge variety of services to the Southwark community for 125 years. The charity has been temporarily accommodated in Great Suffolk Street while their previous premises were completely redeveloped. The new building, located on the corner of Rushworth Street and Pocock Street, SE1, will be a vibrant centre for community life with rooms for a wide range of meetings and activity.
The new building boasts state of the art facilities that will enhance the charity’s provision of youth, older people’s and mental health services in the borough. The modern building will feature a hall with sprung floor, meeting rooms, a cafe, computer rooms, classrooms and other learning rooms, in addition to 15 new affordable homes.
