Deptford Mission - Disabled People's Contact
The DPC is run at Deptford Methodist Mission, and comprises a Day Centre for elderly, disabled people and an evening club for adults with learning disabilities.
The objective of the charity is to offer friendship, support and a sense of community to those who would otherwise be isolated by their personal circumstances. We aim to do this through meeting their practical needs, but also by offering a place of welcome, concern and support to all who come along, be they members or volunteers!
We have a range of volunteering opportunities available in our charity shop, day centre, minibus escort and driver. Please go to https://do-it.org/organisations/deptford-methodist-mission-disabled-peoples-contact
