Parish Action Charities

Parish Action’s focus is to raise parish awareness in social issues relating to health, justice, poverty, education and refuge both locally and globally by providing a platform for event ideas that support our nominated charities both financially and in partnership by promoting their work. 

Fundraising for Regenerate

 

 

Regenerate is a local charity working in Roehampton, Putney and surrounding areas to inspire and support young people by building strong relationships and creating life changing opportunities; helping them grow in confidence, make the best of their lives and impact the world for good.

Selection of our Partner Organisations

 

Selection of our charities is made in consultation with the congregation via a parish-wide survey every three years.   Each chosen charity is assisted for a period of three consecutive years at which point they can tender for one further period of tenure alongside new suggestions. Charities where volunteering opportunities are possible are particularly encouraged because we are equally interested in our journey and community as well as the funds that we raise. We welcome the promotion of new charities within the parish and if anyone would like to propose a new charity that is close to their hearts, please do let us know.
