Catholic Children’s Society (Westminster)

01_large 02_large internal

Tower Hamlets is one of London’s poorest boroughs and the children and families attending St. Francis come from low income families. Often living in sub-standard accomodation where economic and social pressure have resulted in family break up. A large number of children attending the centre come from single parent households. In addition, several children come from asylum seeking and refugee families who have experienced discrimination and violence in their home countries.

St. Francis’ Family Centre supports the families by offering play schemes, after school groups, school counselling, toy library, summer holiday trips. The centre also offers various classes e.g. computing, first aid, self defence and keep fit.

The centre is to be a welcoming, accessible, sustainable and inspiring place for the children and their families as well as for the deprived local area.
