Voluntary Services Lewisham
The Voluntary Care Centre (VCC) is the working name for the Forest Hill & Sydenham Voluntary Service Association Ltd, which was founded over 40 years ago to help those in need within the London Borough of Lewisham.
VCC provide an easily accessible support service and a focal point for those in need within the local community, delivering direct services such as gardening, befriending, shopping, DIY, wheelchair pushing, driving & escorting.
We operate a fund to assist financially where most needed, for relief in crisis situations, and to promote social inclusion.
We recruit, train and place volunteers in voluntary activities which develop their skills and confidence and enhance the quality of life of the service users.
We promote volunteering and volunteering opportunities and we work to identify new opportunities for volunteering.
The British 10K London run is the first of many fundraising events we hope to participate in during 2011/12 and thank all runners running on behalf of VCC and wish all runners the best of luck
