Welcome to Blackfriars Settlement

Blackfriars Settlement is a registered charity based in London SE1 for over 125 years that aims to create and provide community services and support. Whether you want to learn new skills or to have fun and make friends, we have something to suit you.

All of our work is guided by five aims:
  • Supporting the achievement of individual aspirations
  • Promoting physical and mental well-being and independence for all
  • Promoting learning and development - formal and informal
  • Promoting digital inclusion
  • Being a focal point in the community

Please browse our website to find out what we can do for you.

Join us in creating opportunities for the local community; you can help by donating to a service of your choice or generally online at JustGiving.

  • Our Older People Services is buzzing away with activities. The program varies weekly so check out the older people's services newsletter or contact us for more information.
  • MHWBS members just got back from their annual Awayweek in Dorset.  Apart from having a lot of fun and physical activities, members had the opportunity to learn healthy living and cooking skills, teamwork with plenty of socialising thrown in.  Many thanks go to the United St Saviours Charity for their support in making this happen

  • We are celebrating National Volunteers' Week at Blackfriars Settlement June 1 – 7, 2014.

  • Blackfriars Settlement says a big thank you to Lester Reeves for running the London Marathon for us. See more pictures on our Facebook page here.
