- Food for all — an alternating team of at least two members of staff distributing meals to the disadvantaged on Friday lunchtimes each week;

- Southwark Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) — six members of staff, from a wider team of 23, volunteering monthly at their local CAB rent arrears clinic, providing advice to enable tenants to manage their money better.
