Latest news. December 2023

Dear Friends

I am pleased to introduce our new supporter video which was premiered at the service of Thanksgiving in Bromley on 13 November. It provides an insight into our work and features information about our annual Families in Crisis Christmas Appeal.  Please take a look and share widely!  Each family we work with has different needs, and by donating to our campaign you enable our staff to support children and families in the ways they need most and, if we can, to bring a little festive cheer. You can read more about one family we helped, Kim, and the moving poem she sent to thank her dedicated family support worker.

I am delighted to welcome two new team members. Firstly 
Natalie Walters who has joined the trustee team. Her experience as Head of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation within the diocese of Southwark will be a great asset to Welcare. Secondly Katie Toal has joined the staff team as our Head of Practice. It has been wonderful to get to know her and work on finalising our CapeAbility In Schools programme.  You can read more about Katie and her first few weeks here

Finally, we have two festive opportunities for Welcare supporters to join us for carol singing – both events have become a Welcare tradition and for me mark the start of Christmas season.  Please come and join us at the Anglers Pub in Teddington and for south east London supporters we will be at The Glades in Bromley.  All our latest news, events and stories are shared on social media so keep following, tagging and sharing our news. It all helps raise awareness throughout the year.

On behalf of the staff and trustees, I wish you peace and joy this Christmas

With sincere thanks and best wishes

Best wishes
