Sorry, the last email we sent contained a broken link! We've fixed it now.

Welcome to our Autumn 2019 newsletter.

As summer evenings become autumn nights it’s a pleasure to bring you our latest newsletter. Highlights of the summer include our programmes with children and families, particularly our 'Summer Food & Fun'. This group was delivered in Inner London to promote family bonding, and support families struggling without access to their regular free school meals, known colloquially as ‘Holiday Hunger’.

Fittingly, as temperatures cool and leaves begin to turn, our newest case study shows how our Family Support Worker Sam helped a family with emotional health challenges compounded by poor housing. I was especially intrigued to learn about how a weighted blanket can promote a sense of well-being and complete relaxation for the body and nervous system, and in this case was of great help to a child with ASD.

Sincere thanks to our fantastic #TeamWelcare runners, who took part in the ASICS London 10k in July. We're still collecting donations, but are on track for a total of over £2000 in fundraising!  

I also include an update about our services in East Surrey, and confirmation that following the re-modelling of wider children and family services in Surrey, we will run the new Redhill Family Centre launching in November 2019.

Finally, I would like to encourage you to share this newsletter with anyone interested in volunteering with Welcare – our next information event is on 14th September.

With much appreciation and all good wishes,


Anna Khan, Welcare CEO
