Family Support

Help and support is available from many national and local organisations.

Time & Talents

Time & Talents is a lively, busy community organisation based Rotherhithe, Canada Water and Bermondsey. Set in a leafy heritage venue in an old mortuary (which is much nicer than it sounds!), as well as in T&T2, our second venue in Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, Time & Talents has something for everyone.

Action for Children

Every family needs a bit of support from time to time. We’re here to help. We work with families from before children are born until they’re in their twenties. We do this in lots of different ways – in local services, schools and online.We step in early to help build positive relationships. We bring parents together at support groups and in our children’s centres. We offer advice and help with parenting skills. And we never, ever judge.
