Caring In The Heart of Camden

Imagine having no-one to help you in times of need or sickness. Who would you turn to? Who can offer a helping hand? The only answer for many people living in Camden, young or old, is the St Pancras Welfare Trust.

The object of the Trust is to help residents of the former Metropolitan Borough of St Pancras when faced with need or sickness and have nowhere else to turn.

A separate trust, the Camelot Trust, supports holidays and school trips for disadvantaged young children.

The area of benefit of both trusts lies within the heart of the London Borough of Camden and includes some of the most densely populated parts of the borough, many with high indicators of poverty and need.

The most common request is to help people being re-housed - perhaps after years of living rough, living in a hostel or after leaving an institution. They have no resources or possessions and their new homes are usually cold and bare. We help by making small grants in cash or vouchers to buy furniture, bedding and clothes.

We also receive requests to help young mums and their children, the frail and elderly and those in need of respite.

During the year ending 31st March 2013 we made 164 grants totalling £23,577.  An analysis of grants shows that they directly affected a total of 838 individuals.  Beneficiaries included 9 pensioners, 23 persons suffering mental health problems, 26 persons with disabilities, 16 families being re-housed and 11 families seeking asylum.

Your donation or legacy will make an enormous difference.

Thank you
