Volunteer to help make packs for parents in need

Could you help us sort and clean donated clothes for families and new parents who are struggling? 

Maybe you and a couple of friends could spare a few hours on Sunday 16th September to help us put together clothing packs? 

Over the years our wonderful Maureen, who recently retired after 25 years, lovingly put together the bundles. She put so much effort into making sure everything was beautifully presented for the young parents and disadvantaged families we worked with.

Make a nappy happy

Across South London there are nappies languishing in bottom drawers, under beds, at the bottom of bags and inside cupboards. Some of them will stay there for years. It’s a travesty - so we are having a nappy amnesty. 

Set your nappies free 

We have made it our mission to make sure no nappy is left behind this September - we want to give them a fresh start. That they all fulfil their promise of protecting clothes, sofas, carpets and cushioning bottoms. And that they do it for some of the most in-need local families we know.

We really want to be guardian angels to more young parents

Life is tough for young parents living in London. 

They face high rents, high childcare costs and low wages which can leave them isolated and living in poverty. 

We run a number of groups in the Lambeth area which help give young parents support and routine. We want to make sure we can help as many young people as possible and are looking for support from the local community. 

Space for hire

Jigsaw is a child-friendly, self-contained contact space located in our head office in Streatham, south London with its own entrance. Usually, Jigsaw is used for our service of supported and unsupported contact, but we are also taking bookings for space-only hire. 

If you are looking for a space for contact, or simply a light airy room for hire, you can have a look at our prices and make a booking here.

Congratulations to our London Marathon runners

Many congratulations to our Lucky 13 team who all completed the London Marathon in some style and have raised thousands of pounds for our work with families and children. 

They said:

"I definitely won't be doing it again. But we all survived and it was a great experience."

"It was a tough day, had to really dig hard after 22 miles ... not wise to run a marathon after 50 miles event last week."

"Very proud."

"Unfortunately a rhino pipped me in the last 1km but still very happy I've finished."

Marathon runners from the hills

Jens and James, pictures, swung by to visit us in the week before the marathon. 

Having trained since October up and down the hills of Bristol, they're both thrilled that the London Marathon route is much flatter. 

It's a first marathon for both of them and they're looking forward to Sunday 23rd with an equal mix of excitement and trepidation. The aim is 'just' to finish, although, as Jens tells it, "if I'm passed by a giant rhino, I'm probably running a bit too slowly."

Introducing our 2017 London Marathon runners

It is 66 days to go until the London Marathon and our marathon team have well and truly begun training and fundraising. We have been lucky enough to get to know some of the members of our team.



Imogen, a staff member, is running the London Marathon for St Michael’s. Imogen came to visit us in head office with some delicious cakes and biscuits as part of her fundraising.
