BLACKFRIARS SETTLEMENT 

In 2012 we will be celebrating our 125th anniversary of
creating opportunities with our local community across
Borough, Bankside, West Bermondsey and Waterloo.

We run services for children, for young people, older
people, for those who use mental health services and for
those seeking further education. 

WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR ALL OUR FUTURES

With our NEW CENTRE opening in 2012/13, we are looking for
volunteer trustees to represent local cultures, genders and
age groups in order to help us meet the challenges of the
next few years.

If you can offer your time, skills or experience,
particularly  local knowledge, community needs, finance and
development, marketing or fundraising please do give us a
call.

You are also welcome to our AGM on Thursday 1 December 2011
where you can meet other trustees, staff and users of our
services.
