Our Organisation

A few words from our President, The Rt Revd Christopher Chessun, Bishop of Southwark

“As a society, we need to be reminded of the important role parenting in a loving and caring environment plays in children’s futures and to recognise the additional supportive part wider communities can play in families’ lives. Welcare services are dedicated to bringing support to those children and families where the joys of childhood and raising children can be constrained by social isolation, domestic abuse, financial hardship and disadvantage. Welcare understands the pressures associated with family life and is committed to strengthening families by focusing on small, supportive interventions which can transform the lives of vulnerable children and their families and prevent the children of today from becoming the troubled families of tomorrow.

Supporting Welcare in prayer, financially or by volunteering provides the opportunity to respond to the needs of vulnerable children and families, to work together for the common good and to transform lives. I give thanks to God for Welcare and for the dedicated service of those who support the mission of the charity in our communities throughout south London, East Surrey and Bromley.”
