The Team:

Hannah Franklin, Child & Family Support Service Manager – Inner London

Ayesha Alleyne, Child & Family Support Worker

Olamide Alex-Dada, Child & Family Support Worker

Our Inner London service, supporting children, young people, parents and carers, is co-located in our Central Office in Lambeth. We work with families where at least one child is aged 5-13 years old, offering emotional and practical support through a range of services. Underpinning all of our work is the participation between service users – whether children or carers – and our staff and volunteers.

Our services for Inner London include:

  • A range of group work programs for children and carers
  • School-based group work programs
  • Parenting/carer support work
  • One-to-one support for children and young people (5-13 years old)
  • Signposting to other appropriate agencies

It is with regret that Welcare in Inner London 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, plesase email

Current groups


Who is it for?

Children aged 8-10.

What is it?

A 12 week recovery group work programme for children who have been exposed to domestic violence within their homes. None-abusing parents/carers can attend a concurrent group programme to understand the abuse through the eyes of their child in order to help their child’s recovery. Parents must be able to drop off and collect their child, even if they do not wish to attend the parenting group.


Fridays 17th January- 17th April

What time?



We are still taking referrals for our January 2020 MySpace 12 week group work programme.

Please note that the programme has a concurrent group for the non-abusing parent/carer and suggest that carers do attend this where possible.

If you are a professional wanting to refer please ensure that parent/carer can drop off child and collect child as we do not have the capacity to offer transport.
