Who we are

Who are we?

The Voluntary Services Lewisham (VSL) is the working name for the Forest Hill & Sydenham Voluntary Service Association Ltd, which was founded in 1969. Our organisation is a registered Charity (No: 266585) and a company limited by guarantee (No: 1131214) and operates within the London Borough of Lewisham.

What do we do?

We 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, Travel Training and Mental Health Drop-ins.

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.
