Partnerships, Charities & Links
St Margaret's works alongside a number of charities, near and far, throughout the year. There are many ways in which you can help, by donating food items, giving your time and skills or donating financially through special collections throughout the year.
We are currently looking to establish new links and projects through an in-house outreach programme. Find out more at our dedicated page.

CATHEDRAL RELIEF SERVICE (CRS) IN KOLKATA
The Cathedral Relief Service (CRS) in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) supports poor and marginalised people in the city’s slums and remotevillages further afield through education, health and empowerment programmes. The Friends of CRS exists to support this work, mainly through awareness-raising and fundraising. Every penny raised goes to India. Together we can make a difference. Find out here about CRS and how to support the work through the Friends.
Christian Aid is a Christian organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.
We work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. We are part of a wider movement for social justice.
We provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.
AFRIL works with refugees and asylum seekers. We are a small locally run charity based in Lewisham, one of the most deprived local authority areas in England, with a very high refugee and asylum seeker population. We work to relieve poverty and isolation amongst this vulnerable group, advance their education, and provide services to improve social integration.
Our vision is to help vulnerable people overcome drug and alcohol dependence, find decent homes and lead lives that have meaning and purpose.
Groundwork is a national charity that works with communities across the UK supporting them to create better places, live and work in a greener, more sustainable way and to improve their economic prospects.
The next five years will present huge challenges for society. As the economy recovers, continued reductions in public spending mean there is a risk of greater social inequality and greater geographic disparity. With the development of a new strategy: Groundwork 2020, our ambition is to build our visibility, our reputation and our resource base so that we can be a significant, radical, national force for driving change in attitudes, behaviours, places and prospects in the local communities that need it most.
