Eleanor Care’s Lewisham headquarters has been striving to make links and create a network within the local community in order to raise awareness of local services and charities.
Age UK Lewisham and Southwark, whose local branch is located on Catford Broadway, offer invaluable drop in sessions, advising on a range of topics from finance to care for elderly people.
There is also a local befriending scheme, of which Eleanor hopes to become involved with following a planned meeting with the Age UK Lewisham and Southwark CEO in October.
Offering advice, counselling and support, not only to those with mental health problems, but also their friends and families, Mind is a charity which is becoming more and more important in our current society.
Banishing the stigma associated with mental health is one of their objectives, and at Eleanor we want to contribute towards this goal. Utilising training offered by Mind, we aim to further the knowledge and skills of our care workers, who regularly provide care to people with mental health issues.
Three C’s – Control and Choice in the Community – are a Lewisham based charity that provides outreach services, community support and housing to local residents with learning disabilities.
