The Team:

Barbara Wilson, Child & Family Support Manager – South East

Gemma Hughes, Children’s Support Worker

Located in the heart of the Nightingale Vale estate, our Greenwich centre provides services for parents and carers. The focus of our work is to provide both practical and emotional support to help children and families overcome challenges and improve outcomes.


We deliver


    • Group work for parents and children (including MySpace – Welcare’s domestic abuse recovery programme for mother’s and children who have experienced or witnessed domestic abuse)
    • Direct work with children
    • Voice of a child group – Children who have received services through the group work programme meet on a quarterly basis and give Welcare feedback about the groups
    • One-to-one family support work
    • Advocacy
    • Mentoring for children aged 8-13

It is with regret that Welcare in Greenwich is now closed to the public.

In line with the latest government guidelines our staff continues to work with individual parents and children by answering calls, emails and using other digital channels. We continue to receive new referrals for individual, one-to-one support.

We are still working, just differently. 

We are offering supermarket vouchers to families most in need, if you wish to refer a family to receive one, please email

If you wish to get in touch with us by phone and do not have a mobile number for the worker, you can ring using the number below which we will aim to monitor Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm
