Welcare in Bromley now works from Community House in South Street in Bromley.
Work with children and families throughout the Covid-19 crisis
Many families experienced unprecedented challenges over the last twelve months of the Covid-19 crisis. Families who have never faced financial difficulties before have found themselves at breaking point and have been impacted by job losses and illness and have been left unable to feed their children or provide warm clothing. Welcare staff and supporters responded to these challenges by launching “Families in Crisis” to supplement the local food banks and emergency grants and funds they can access from local grant-making trusts. Welcare purchased supermarket vouchers, sourced laptops for children being home-schooled and worked closely with voluntary sector partners to ensure they are targeting support where it was most needed. The practical and financial support by Welcare has been much appreciated, and needed, by many families and provided a financial lifeline at a time of great need.
Families In Crisis Appeal
This Christmas Welcare in Bromley asks supporters and churches to donate to their “Families In Crisis Appeal” rather than donate toys to Welcare. This enables them to use the funding flexibly and tailor their help to the individual situation, eg.providing carpets, other furniture, or supermarket vouchers to enable parents to purchase school uniforms or warm clothes.
