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.
