Cancer Research UK Greenwich & District local committee
A friendly group raising money to fight cancer while having fun. Why not see what events we are running and join us?
We have a low volume emailing list (8-10 emails a year) detailing all our events so why not find out what's going on locally.
We are also always looking for people to help out either at one of our larger events, run their own event or join us on the committee so why not drop us an email and see what you can do to help fund our research.

Demelza Hospice Care for Children
Demelza Hospice Care for Children supports life-limited children and their families across South East London, Kent and East Sussex.
Demelza has two hospices, one in Eltham and one in Sittingbourne, Kent as well as a community nursing team based in East Sussex.
The charity, which has been in existence since 1994, offers respite, symptom control, end-of-life care and bereavement support for families with children who are either life limited or suffer from conditions which mean they need a lot of specialist care. We look after babies to teenagers and offer respite to allow their families a much deserved break.
We offer our services to families free of charge and receive limited funding, the majority of support coming from private donations.

Social Arts for Education
We are a home-ed study centre in Eltham, London, that supports the education and well-being of children aged 8-16 years old whoare being home educated due to bullying, autism or other related conditions.
The majority of our students suffer from anxiety and are unable to access the wide range of home education facilities and groups available. SAFE provides quieter and smaller learning groups with a reduced stimuli environment. Our tutors volunteer their time at SAFE and understand the need for individualism, creative learning and respect for one another.
