Bede is a local community charity (Registered Charity No. 303199 Registered Company No. 420386). At Bede, they believe strong, confident communities enable people to flourish. That is why, since 1938, they have been working from the Bermondsey and Rotherhithe base in Southwark to support local people in creating better lives for themselves, their families and their communities.
As a local organisation, they have the flexibility to respond to changing need in the local area. To support the needs of those in the local community they run four key services: Learning Disabilities, Youth Work, Starfish Domestic Violence Project and Community Engagement. Each are aimed at bringing people of different backgrounds, skills and experiences together to build long term, supportive relationships that help to create new opportunities for those involved – these include adults with learning disabilities, young people and families on low incomes and survivors of domestic violence and abuse.
With government statistics showing that some of Southwark’s neighbourhoods are among the 10% most deprived in the country, they strive to ensure as many people as possible have access to the support they need. The work helps those in the local community to reach their full potential.
