Greenwich Centre of Mission
The Greenwich Centre of Mission works across a number of housing estates and communities in South London and is led by Nick Russell, where he works alongside Karen Saunders. They work in some of the most deprived communities in the UK, where there are high levels of anxiety and depression. Nick is based in Kidbrooke and Eltham where his work includes: The Superkidz Community Trust, which reaches out to hundreds of deprived children, young people and parents each year through youth and children’s clubs, home visiting and mentoring, families work, holiday clubs and trips and employment advice and training, with specialist work with young offenders and those at risk of offending; Coffee Stop - a cafe and advice centre for socially excluded adults, which also provides advocacy and outings and Friendship Church – an accessible Christian service for adults. Karen is based in Thamesmead and Abbey Wood, where she partners with the youth charity, XLP to run a computer and games bus and works with local schools to help those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. She also runs a community youth club, relaxed Bible and prayer evenings for the young people and a youth church, which is led by the young people. You can find out more about up to date news at Greenwich in their latest newsletter.
